“We watch the river every day. We wake up to it, go to sleep to it, and have learned to appreciate all the ways Riverkeeper interacts with the river to improve our lives and the environment.” Lauren Shenfield and her husband, Marc, spoke with us about their reasons for supporting our work. "It’s not just a do-good organization," Marc says. "It’s got teeth, which makes us feel better about doing whatever we can do for them. Because they’re really ‘mad dogs’ when they have to be. They’re not just leading protests and holding signs saying ‘Save the Hudson.’ Riverkeeper gets stuff done because they’re not afraid to tackle the big guys and butt heads.” Link in our bio to read more.

Want to guess what's the No. 1 item in shoreline trash along the Hudson & NYC? During 100+ cleanups in #RiverkeeperSweep May 4, plastic bottles turned up by the bazillion. At a dozen locations, volunteers tried to count every one. Scenic Hudson Park in Westchester, for example: 248. Parkway Oval Park on the Bronx River, 197. John V. Lindsay East River Park, Manhattan, 255. In Flushing Bay, 290, plus 553 plastic bottle caps. Stay with us as we rally for solutions to this problem. Comment with your thoughts on what needs to be done. Thank you!! . #hudsonriver #riverkeeper #hudsonvalley #plasticpollution #plasticbottles @beyondplasticsbennington @plastic_patrol @plasticpollutes @cbsnewyork @wnyc @gothamist @hudsonvalleymag

Good luck swimmers!! These amazing athletes splashed in today for the 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim – the longest open water swim event in the world. The organizers use water quality data gathered by Riverkeeper, @lamontearth & @queenscollegeofficial @cunyedu to plan their swims, and you can too. [Link in bio.] There are at least 38 open water swim events planned this year in the Hudson and NY Harbor, with 4,500 or more participants.

There goes a big piece of the old Tappan Zee Bridge. The ‘east anchor span’ was brought down in an emergency demolition in January using explosives. #tappanzee #hudsonriver #irvingtonny
