New Jersey Friends of Clearwater (NJFC) is a grass roots organization, fully non-profit, volunteer-run and staffed.

Since 1974, this organization has been actively educating children and adults on the importance of clean, clear water and to urge citizens to be responsible custodians of our domain: the estuaries of the Raritan, Passaic, Hudson, Delaware, and other NJ Rivers; the Jersey Shore coastline and its inland waterways; and the land of New Jersey. 


​Our Credo: It is the aim of New Jersey Friends of Clearwater 
that each member in their own way touch the people 
immediately surrounding them and in their community, and by word or deed convey the importance of conservation and 
reparation of the earth.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

This committee deals with our hands-on programs for the environment. 

MUSIC & CLEARWATER

Education is mandatory to change people's attitude toward our past ecological mistakes and point the way toward sensible management of our natural resources.

Clearwater was literally founded and funded by music.

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

SAILING & CLEARWATER
ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION

Whether aboard our 106’ Sloop Clearwater, our 26’ garvey Pete’s Banjo or with our network of sail-based partners, sailing 
is in Clearwater’s DNA.
