Opportunity Details

Clean River Project - Sponsored by PepsiCo

Westchester Parks Foundation is looking for volunteers to help with its citizen science project—the Clean River Project—to address the issue of floatable trash, which is one of the three major water quality issues on the Bronx River. Volunteers will wear waders in the river and help count the bottles, cans, straws, and more found in the trash boom. The information collected helps find the sources of this trash and stops it 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, and it unites messaging around the harm to local waterways caused by non-biodegradable products.

Waders, gloves, and trash bags will be provided. Volunteers should bring their own water and wear clothes that can get dirty, closed-toe shoes, and socks. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot and walk the path together to the project site.
