THE SCENEThe Great Hudson River Revival, Clearwaterâ€™s annual music and environmental festival, brings people together from around the country to honor the river through songs, education and action. Inspired by Pete Seegerâ€™s desire to clean up the river over forty years ago, the 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 is a non-profit organization that sails at the forefront of the nationâ€™s environmental challenges. The revenue raised by the Revival goes to support Clearwaterâ€™s numerous educational programs and its work toward environmental and social justiceâ€”as well as keeping the Clearwater afloat.
