The Clearwater mission

2019 is a special year for Clearwater — the 50th anniversary of the sloop’s maiden voyage and the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger’s birth.  The organization’s mission from the beginning has been to build grassroots support for protecting our watershed, with education programs that have reached more than half a million people since 1969, and a music festival that draws thousands annually. Clearwater played a key role in the passage of the Clean Water Act — and today, as rollbacks to hard-won clean air and water standards loom, continuing Pete’s work has never been more important.
