Riverkeeper is a Hudson River watchdog/advocacy group that monitors and advocates for keeping our beloved Hudson River clean. It is a great place to check for the condition of the river from NYC to Waterford. Sad to say that the Hudson is rarely swimmable in the Albany area.
Check out their website for more information.
We have participated in their annual event where we have picked up garbage along the riverbanks and on the water as well.
We are trying to expand into the Capital District and need a couple people to (wo)man their table with petitions, volunteer signup sheets, our annual report, and our new 2014 water quality report.
There will be a trained volunteer at the market to guide new volunteers through the motions. If this event fills up and you are still interested in volunteering with us please contact Jeremy at [masked]
I will provide phone numbers and contact info once volunteers sign up!
