About this Event

Join I Paddle New York and Riverkeeper for a clean-up event at Esopus Falls and Saugerties Bay on Saturday, May 1, for the 10th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep, a day of service for the Hudson River and its tributaries.

Meet at Tina Chorvas Park, 61 East Bridge Street, Saugerties NY. Volunteers will travel to Esopus Falls and Saugerties Bay by Kayak. Volunteers who want to join by kayak/canoe must BE EXPERIENCED PADDLERS and bring their own boat(s) with Personal Flotation (PFD) gear, shoes that can get wet and work gloves. We ask all Sweep volunteers to also bring a hat, sunscreen, a full reusable water bottle, and a face mask, work gloves and hand sanitizer. This site is not suitable for elementary-aged children.

*IMPORTANT! To ensure the safety of volunteers, Sweep Site Leaders, park staff, and our communities, we ask that volunteers adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Volunteers are required to pre-register for Sweep, and bring their own masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and water.
  • All participants and Sweep Leaders must wear masks that fully cover both their nose and mouth, at all times, no exceptions.
  • All volunteers must maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet and wear masks at all times. When announcements are being made, a distance of 15 feet should be maintained.
  • Volunteers should carpool only with members of their own household.
  • Volunteers should not participate if they have ANY signs of illness or if they have potentially been exposed to COVID-19 within the previous two weeks.
