Join the Adirondack Mountain Club: Mid-Hudson Chapter and Riverkeeper for a cleanup of Lower Wappinger Creek from the Market Street Boat Launch to the Hudson River on Saturday, May 5, 2018 for the 7th 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). If that lot fills up, additional parking is available at Temple Field. There will be a cleanup of the mini-park at the boat launch by land, followed by a creek cleanup from the boats. 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, snacks, and work gloves if possible. Work gloves will be provided for those who do not have their own. Trash bags will be provided on site. Snacks may be provided if supermarket(s) donate them.

Volunteers participating in the boat section of the cleanup must bring their own boat(s) with Personal Flotation (PFD) gear and shoes that can get wet.For safety reasons, the boats section of the cleanup is not suitable for elementary-aged children. The minipark cleanup by land is appropriate for elementary-aged children with proper adult supervision.
