The Hudson River has many hundreds of mile of shoreline. Each year various groups get out and clean up the shoreline so that the trash will stay out of the river and so that the public can enjoy the river without having to do it around trash. Some of the debris is man made some of it is Mother Nature's doing thanks to sever seasonal weather.

This Saturday you are invited to join Riverkeepers and watershed community organizations for a shoreline clean up at Kingston Point Beach. The City of Kingston along with Kingston Parks and Recreation have teamed up with these groups for the 10th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep. They call it a day of service for the Hudson River and it tributaries.

Most of us enjoy the banks of the Hudson at some point during the milder part of the year. Whether you Kayak or boat, fish or even dine along it's bank you can appreciate the amazing resource that the river is for those of us that call the Hudson Valley home. If you have time and you can help this Saturday bring some friends and help clean up the shoreline in Kingston.

If you can't make it this Saturday there will be other ways that you can help keep our river clean.
