2020 Riverkeeper Sweep

Riverfront Park
2020



Castleton-on-Hudson


What a wonderful day Riverkeeper Sweep on Saturday, October 17th was! COHMSA, supported by Village officials, staff and volunteers, helped clean up 225 lbs. of garbage from the banks of the Hudson River. We also removed a massive amount of scrub trees and overgrowth from Riverfront Park, unveiling this hidden treasure and revealing beautiful vistas of the River.

Riverkeeper, who organized this Sweep event in more than 65 sites along the Hudson from Brooklyn to the Capital Region said that with only half the sites reporting results, 27,801 lbs. of garbage was cleaned from the River. Thank you to everyone who helped maintain one of our most precious resources.

Main Street Planters are Back


The Meet Me on Main planters are back out on Main Street for Memorial Day. We added a new metal planter this year that was donated by our friends at The Castleton Tractor Supply Store. We would like to thank them for their donation of the planter to be used on Main Street. The COHMSA team planted each of the planters and added flags.

With the current circumstances of COVID-19 that we are facing as a Nation we all can use some strength to get through this. To show we are all in this together and everything will be alright, COHMSA has placed Castleton Strong signs along Main Street. Keep thinking Castleton Strong!
