The non-profit organization Hudson River Sloop Clearwater was created to defend and restore the Hudson River, one of the great and historic rivers of this nation:

  • To investigate and conduct research into any causes or sources of contamination and destruction of this river, its tributaries and similar river systems;
  • To inform the public of such dangers and to assist the public in taking such measures to stop such contamination;
  • To educate the general populace as to the importance of preserving the Hudson River, its tributaries and other similar river systems;
  • To foster the historic and cultural heritage of the Hudson River Valley from the mountains to the sea;
  • To protect the well-being of individuals who dwell along its banks and related areas;
  • To protect and restore other great waterways;
  • To conduct other actions that will enhance and improve the environment of the Hudson River Valley and surrounding areas.

We need ENTHUSIASTIC, ADAPTABLE, AND OUTGOING volunteers to spend a week as part of the crew onboard the majestic 106′ Sloop Clearwater.

As a volunteer, you’ll:

  • Live aboard the sloop for seven days
  • Assist the permanent crew with sailing duties
  • Become a teacher in Clearwater’s renowned Classroom of the Waves environmental education program
  • Learn more about the Hudson River- its history, its fish and invertebrates, its health, its currents and breezes, its beauty, than you ever hoped to learn.

Folks, this is your chance for a unique and memorable adventure filled with fun, learning, and hard work!
