Description

Join us to celebrate Pete Seeger’s 100th birthday—and the 50th anniversary of the ship Clearwater—with film, music, and storytelling! In 1966, in despair over the pollution of his beloved Hudson River, legendary musician, singer, songwriter, environmentalist, and peace advocate Pete Seeger declared he would build a boat to save the river. Three years later, the Clearwater, a majestic 106-foot sloop, was launched. With one of the first sailing ships to conduct onboard science-based environmental education, the Clearwater organization carries forward Seeger’s legacy by partnering with Hudson Valley schools and communities to educate and encourage youth to become active stewards of their environment and the Hudson River.
