Inspired by Pete Seegers desire to clean up the river over forty years ago, the Great Hudson River Revival initially helped raise the funds to build the sloop Clearwater, which has since become a world-renowned floating classroom and a symbol of effective grassroots action. Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, INC is a non-profit organization that sails at the forefront of the nations environmental challenges. The revenue raised by the Revival goes to support Clearwaters numerous educational programs and its work toward environmental and social justice - as well as keeping the sloop Clearwater afloat.
