Clearwater was literally founded and funded by music! Our Clearwater Festival is NJ Friends of Clearwater's annual open-air music festival celebrating the spirit of people working & singing together for the environment. It has been the networking hub for sharing and promoting new ideas  on Environmental and Social Justice for almost 50 years!



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


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!
