ALBANY (AP) -- The Hudson River shoreline is a little tidier after more than 100 clubs and organizations took part in the second annual Riverkeeper Sweep this weekend.
Dan Shapley of Riverkeeper says about 75 cleanup projects were held Saturday from Albany to New York City. Hundreds of volunteers picked up trash, planted trees and did other work in riverfront parks.
Riverkeeper is a watchdog organization dedicated to defending the Hudson River and its tributaries from pollution and preserving river ecology.
