Join Dutchess Outreach and Riverkeeper for a shoreline cleanup of Poughkeepsie’s Waryas Park on Saturday, May 4, 2019, for the 8th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep, a day of service for the Hudson River.

Let’s Sweep the Shoreline Clean! Join us on Saturday, May 4, 9 am – 12 pm at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie.


Volunteers will meet at the shoreline in front of the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum Parking Lot. We ask all Sweep volunteers to wear sturdy shoes or boots, clothing that they can get dirty, and bring a hat, a reusable water bottle, and snacks. This site is suitable for elementary-aged children with proper adult supervision.

Questions? Contact Riverkeeper at or site leader Sarah Salem at

The sweep would not be possible without the support of Riverkeeper volunteers and members. Magnify your impact at Sweep by joining our Sweep Crowdrise campaign! When you build your own Crowdrise team or join an existing one, you demonstrate your commitment to a trash-free Hudson and inspire your network to support Riverkeeper’s work to protect the Hudson River and its tributaries. You and your Crowdrise supporters will become Riverkeeper members, and the more members we have standing with us, the more we can accomplish together.
