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 Mission:  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.

​​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.​​

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