A big part of Hackensack Riverkeeper’s mission to protect, preserve and restore the Hackensack River watershed is to engage the people of our watershed to take responsibility for it. Throughout the year, we invite the community to participate in the many River Cleanups we host in various locations in the watershed. Learn more.
Hackensack Riverkeeper and the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office are partnering on a joint anti-litter campaign designed to reduce the amount of trash that makes its way from the county’s roadways into its waterways and beyond! Learn how to do your part to end litter.
Reports from citizens are vital for effective enforcement of environmental laws. You can help by keeping an eye out for signs of pollution like oil spills, sewage discharges, and illegal dumping.
