We need a web-based platform to facilitate the management of our annual Sweep program. This platform would need to include the ability to post and manage more than 120 sites, allow the public to register for each site and purchase a t-shirt if they so desire (integrated payment processing), and produce custom reports by site. We have used Eventbrite in the past, but find it does not fully meet our needs to so seek a tailored platform to streamline management of this project.
This project will allow us to improve our management of the Sweep program, specifically in improving user experience for registrants and our data reporting.
Our Mission: To protect the environmental, recreational and commercial integrity of the Hudson River and its tributaries, and safeguard the drinking water of nine million New York City and Hudson Valley residents.
Our Vision: The Hudson River and the NYC Watershed are healthy ecosystems teeming with life. Residents and visitors care for and help protect these ecosystems, which provide safe drinking water and abundant opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating and other recreational activities.
Our Story: We began as the Hudson River Fisherman's Association and, over 50 years later, we are New York’s clean water advocate, having helped set worldwide standards for waterway and watershed protection and serving as the model for more than 300 Keeper programs around the globe.
Riverkeeper focuses on three overarching problems facing Hudson River communities:
- Restoration of the Hudson River ecosystem, with particular emphasis on minimizing fish kills and water pollution;
- Protection of New York City’s drinking water supply; and
- Improving public access to the Hudson River.
Enforcement & Litigation:
Riverkeeper has successfully challenged the illegal activities of some of the largest and most notorious polluters, including: Exxon-Mobil, General Electric, Consolidated Edison, Metropolitan Transit Authority, the City of New York, and the New York State Department of Transportation.
In any given season the Riverkeeper Patrol Boat logs approximately 5,600 nautical miles patrolling from New York Harbor downstate to Troy upstate.
Policy & Legislation:
As the Hudson Valley's chief law enforcer, Riverkeeper works to strengthen the laws and regulations that protect New York’s water and waterways.
Riverkeeper knows that protecting and restoring our waterways takes the effort of every citizen, which is why we use print, electronic media, and even our current traveling photo exhibit to teach the public about our work.
