Come join Westchester Parks Foundation on the Bronx River Reservation for Clean River Project with Riverkeeper! We will be wearing waders in the shallow river clearing trash from our boom.
This program addresses floatable trash, one of the three major water quality issues on the Bronx River. Volunteers participate in real science, through hands-on experiences. The information we will collect helps find the source(s) and stops trash from entering the river in the first place. The project engages volunteers by promoting outreach to local businesses whose products end up in and along the river, especially uniting messaging around the harm to our waterways caused by non-biodegradable products. Volunteers will put on waders and help us count the bottles, cans, straws, and more that we find caught in the trash boom.
All supplies will be provided. Please wear clothes that can get dirty.
Our group will be meeting at the WESTCHESTER COUNTY CENTER PARKING LOT EAST and walking to the project location together. Tell the person at the ticket booth you are volunteering with the Westchester Parks Foundation and they will allow you to park for free.
