Join the Adirondack Mountain Club: Mid-Hudson Chapter and Riverkeeper for a cleanup of Lower Wappingers Creek from the Market Street Boat Launch to the Hudson River on Saturday, May 6, 2017 for the 6th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep, a day of service for the Hudson River.

Volunteers should meet at the Market Street Boat Launch in Wappingers Falls (across from Temple Field). We ask all Sweep volunteers to wear sturdy shoes or boots, clothing that they can get dirty, to bring a hat, sunscreen, a reusable water bottle, and snacks. Volunteers must bring their own boat(s) with Personal Flotation (PFD) gear, shoes that can get wet and work gloves. There will be a cleanup of the mini-park at the boat launch by land, followed by a creek cleanup from the boats. For safety reasons, this site is not suitable for elementary-aged children.
