Riverkeeper is a New York-based environmental organization that was cofounded by Arthur Glowka and Robert H. Boyle.

"The Hudson is home to one of the most sophisticated and aggressive environmental communities to protect any resource in the world," states the group's website. "Since the early 1960s, a vigilant band of environmental groups, including NRDC, Clearwater, Scenic Hudson, and Riverkeeper, have fought to maintain the River’s biological and aesthetic integrity. In 1966, Riverkeeper was launched as the Hudson River Fishermen's Association, a blue-collar coalition of commercial and recreational fishermen, whose first public meeting was at the American Legion Hall in Crotonville, New York."
