Friends of the Hudson

Philipstown and Beacon residents picked up trash along the Hudson River on Saturday (Oct. 17) as part of the ninth annual Riverkeeper Sweep. The volunteers included, at Little Stony Point Park, members of Girl Scout Troop 2032 and Brownie Troop 1091 from Cold Spring. More than 259 tons of debris have been removed between Brooklyn and the Adirondacks since the first cleanup in 2012.
