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

Music & Clearwater!

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.

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

SAILING & CLEARWATER
New Jersey Friends of Clearwater (NJFC) is a grass roots organization, fully non-profit, volunteer-run and staffed.
ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION
ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION
MAKING A DIFFERENCE

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.

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