Location: Riverside Park, New York, NY
Haul: 280 lbs.New York's Riverside Park provides millions of New Yorkers with valuable environmental programming. For many urban youth, Riverside Park is their first introduction to nature and connection to the Hudson River, so we decided to tackle the park for our first ever NYC cleanup! We discovered an abandoned urine sample, driftwood, plenty of plastic, and several discarded boots along the rocky shoreline. Huge thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help make this park a little cleaner for all Upper West Siders.
