The Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park and Riverkeeper are hosting their 8th annual Riverkeeper Sweep this weekend to help clear debris from the Brooklyn waterfront and garden near the East River shore; registration is required.
Volunteers are invited to help in the planting and shore cleanup on Saturday, May 4th, from 10 a.m -1 p.m.:
Volunteers will meet at the Bushwick Inlet Park Community Building, (North 9th Street & Kent Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211), where street parking will be available. We ask all Sweep volunteers to wear sturdy shoes or boots, clothing that they can get dirty, and to bring work gloves, a hat, sunscreen, a reusable water bottle and snacks. This site is suitable for elementary-aged children with proper adult supervision.
