About Us

Pete Seeger launched the sloop Clearwater in 1969 to clean up the Hudson River. Join us as we continue the work, inspiring, educating and motivating new generations of environmental leaders to preserve and protect our earth!


Clearwater’s longtime strategy of inspiring, educating and activating people is still a powerful formula for success. Utilizing the greatest natural resource in the region – the Hudson River – Clearwater is the grassroots model for generating change to protect our planet.


Over the years, Clearwater has been at the forefront of the environmental movement, working to pass landmark legislation such as the Clean Water Act and protecting all of us from toxic waste.


But the job of saving our earth is, in many ways, growing more urgent and complex. We strive to support growing grass-roots efforts and provide educational experiences to all people, especially youth of various ethnicities, economic and cultural backgrounds, to help new generations of strong environmental stewards. A green. sustainable future truly hangs in balance.
