Spring is here, and it's time for Spring cleaning. Not just for your house, it's also time to clean up the Hudson River shoreline. The 8th annual Riverkeeper Sweep of the shoreline is coming up on Saturday, May 4, from 9 am - 12 noon at Waryas Park at the bottom of Main Street in Poughkeepsie.

Volunteers will meet at the shoreline in front of the Mid-Hudson Children's Museum parking lot. All Sweep volunteers should 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. Keeping the environment clean is a great lesson for kids, so if you have older children that would like to help, bring them if you can keep them supervised.

For more information about the Riverkeeper Sweep at Waryas Park, visit the event facebook page or contact site leaders Sarah Salem at sarah@dutchessoutreach.org or Europa McGovern at Europamcgovern@gmail.com.
