Clearwater was launched in 1969 by  legendary musician, singer, songwriter, folklorist, activist, environmentalist, and peace advocate Pete Seeger. Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. and the iconic sloop Clearwater are carrying forward Pete Seeger’s legacy by partnering with Hudson Valley schools and community leaders to raise the bar of environmental education and encouraging youth to become involved as active stewards of their environment and the Hudson River.

The sloop Clearwater is recognized as America’s Environmental Flagship and is among the first vessels in the United States to conduct science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship. In 2004, the sloop Clearwater was named to the National Register of Historic Places for its goundbreaking role in the environmental movement.

Join Ted Steinberg, Professor of Law and History at Case Western Reserve University, for a discussion of how an island estuary became one of the world’s most densely populated cities.

In his new book, Gotham Unbound: An Ecological History of New York, from Henry Hudson to Hurricane Sandy (Simon & Schuster, 2014), Steinberg examines the region’s transformation over three centuries through an ecological lens. He'll explain the origins of place names like the Meadowlands, and reveal a story of common rights and private property, land grants and landfills, salt marshes and wetlands, and the deep environmental importance of the points where land meets sea.
