Events for May 2017

May 06, 2017 (10a-2p)
Bronx River Sweep

At the Bronx River Watershed Summit in December 2016, there was overwhelming support for watershed-wide activities and increased partnerships, so we would like to invite you to join us in new programming that ties together groups across the watershed. On Saturday, May 6th, we are excited to bring the Riverkeeper Sweep to the Bronx River to get teams of people out collecting trash all along the Bronx River and assessing what we find.

For this event we are looking for 1) leaders to be the point of contact at a specific location (please contact Michelle if you would like assistance selcecting sites) and/or 2) groups to fill out the numbers at sites lead by others.
