United By Blue Hudson River Cleanup

Join United By Blue and Riverside Park Conservancy for a cleanup of the Hudson River at Riverside Park this summer!

Riverside Park is a historical natural gem along the Manhattan coast. Aside from being an escape into nature from the city, the park supports one of the oldest cultivated collections of American Elms, a thriving bird sanctuary, and a number of migratory woodland species. These species, as well as park users, depend on the health of the park and the Hudson River to maintain this natural haven. However, due to heavy park traffic and the flow of the river, litter and trash can present a problem to the park as a habitat. Additionally, land-based trash from the park can end up in the river, adding to the plastic problems that eventually flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Help us clean up this litter from the park and riverbanks, and leave Riverside Park and the Hudson River cleaner than how we found it!

United By Blue will provide all cleanup supplies, snacks, and water. Join us for cleanup games, prize giveaways, and a day of enjoying and caring for Riverside Park! Please wear closed toe shoes, dress warmly and be prepared to get dirty! 

United By Blue thanks Zipcar for its transportation support during the 2018 cleanup season.
