Clearwater - Call for volunteers
The Great Hudson River Revival is produced by the nonprofit, member-supported, environmental organization Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. All proceeds go directly to support Clearwater's environmental research, education and advocacy efforts to help preserve and protect the Hudson River and its tributaries, as well as communities in the river valley.

Clearwater is seeking nearly 900 volunteers to work at the Festival this year; go to and sign up today!

The 2019 Clearwater Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16 at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson, Westchester County, NY.

Learn the basics of sailing in a classroom situation and potentially become a member of the crew on the "Woody Guthrie", historic wooden replica of a gaff-rigged Hudson River Sloop.

Class meets once a week on Wednesday evenings, beginning April 10th and finishing on May 29th. Classes run from 7-9PM and the total cost is $50 (includes a textbook for you to keep 8 sessions). All classes will be held at the Beacon Sloop Club, 2 Flynn Drive, a wooden shingled building at the rivers edge across from the Beacon train station. (8 Weds.
