Join Friends of Transmitter Park and Riverkeeper for a shoreline and inland cleanup at WNYC Transmitter park for the 11th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep.

Volunteers will meet at 10 Kent Street Brooklyn, NY 11222, by the mural wall. Street parking may be available.

We ask all Sweep volunteers to also bring a hat, sunscreen, a full reusable water bottle, and a face mask, work gloves and hand sanitizer.
