As committed stewards of the river and our future home, we “sweep” the Brooklyn Bridge Esplanade from Pier 35 to Pier 17, removing trash and debris that could enter the river, hurting its water quality, impacting its accessibility, and changing its ecology. Marine debris also harms wildlife, threatens public health, and impacts the economic vitality of the communities the water surrounds–which is all of us!
Each year, we also participate in Riverkeepers’ Annual Statewide Riversweep, a day of service for the Hudson River. Volunteers clean up tons of trash, plant healthy vegetation, and remove invasive plant species at more than 120 locations across the State.
