    Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival
    A Music & Environmental Festival

    Clearwater Environmental Organization

    • "One of the Top 4 Music Festivals in the U.S."
      Outside Magazine,

    • "Clearwater is everything a Folk Festival should be; good music, good people and good fun.You'll find your community is bigger when you leave than when you came.",

    About Clearwater
    "Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit, member- supported corporation whose mission is to preserve and protect the Hudson River. In 1966, folk music legend and environmental activist Pete Seeger, in despair over the pollution of his beloved Hudson River, announced plans to “build a boat to save the river”. At the time, the Hudson was rank with raw sewage, toxic chemicals and oil pollution; fish had disappeared over many miles of its length. Seeger believed a majestic replica of the sloops that sailed the Hudson in the 18th and 19th centuries would bring people to the river, where they could experience its beauty and be moved to preserve it. Inspired by that vision, the 106-feet-long tall ship Clearwater was built and launched in 1969. The sloop was among the first vessels in the U.S. to conduct science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship, virtually creating the template by which such programs are conducted around the world today.

    "Since the launch of the Clearwater, more than 430,000 young people and hundreds of thousands of adults have experienced their first real look at an estuary’s ecosystem—fish, invertebrates, water chemistry and ecological principals—aboard the sloop. Clearwater’s environmental education programs now serve more than 15,000 students annually, and the organization also educates over 200 teachers each year through SUNY New Paltz, Pace University and other institutions. Clearwater’s members have helped advocate for the Clean Water Act, the Hudson River Park Act and removal of PCB’s from the Hudson.

    "The Clearwater has become America’s Environmental Flagship, and was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004 for its role in the environmental movement. Each summer, Clearwater re-connects Hudson Valley residents with their cultural heritage and traditions by bringing them down to the river for the Great Hudson River Revival, the country’s oldest music and environmental festival. The organization and its local sloop clubs also sponsor smaller local riverfront festivals throughout the year. Clearwater’s unique approach to public outreach has made the Clearwater a symbol of grassroots action through hands-on learning, music and celebration."

    518-537-4240 
      Clermont State Historic Site, overlooking the Hudson River, is located at One Clermont Avenue, Germantown, NY 12526 in Columbia County in the Hudson River Valley. Clermont State Historic Site was the Hudson River seat of New York's politically and socially prominent Livingston Family. Seven successive generations of the family left their imprint on the site's architecture, room interiors, and landscape.

    Robert R. Livingston, Jr. was Clermont's most notable resident. His accomplishments include: drafting the Declaration of Independence, serving as first U.S. Minister of Foreign Affairs, administering the oath of office to George Washington, negotiating the Louisiana Purchase, and developing steamboat technology with Robert Fulton. Today, Clermont appears much as it did in the early 20th century . . . Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1973, Clermont is an anchor in the 1990 Hudson River National Landmark District.

    American Revolution / War of Independence
    Because of the Livingston family's prominent role in support of independence, Clermont was burned by British troops under the command of General John Vaughan during a foray up the Hudson River in the autumn of 1777. Margaret Beekman Livingston, who managed the estate during most of the war years, rebuilt the family home between 1779 and 1782.

      Time & Space Limited, a theater is located at 434 Columbia Street, Hudson, NY 12534 in Columbia County.

    From TSL: "Theater provides the ways and means for understanding problems and achieving a solution. A group of artists agrees on a text and then acts on it. The action is key. Not the product but the process of action; this is a model we use.” Linda Mussmann, Co- Director, Time & Space Limited.

    "TSL uses this concept of how theater works, as a blueprint for everything the company approaches. Time & Space Limited Theater Company was founded in NYC in 1973. In 1991, TSL moved to Hudson, New York, where it expanded its role as an avant-garde theater company to include becoming a community arts organization, while always keeping theater at its core.

    "TSL’s programming spotlights the powerful role of the arts in awakening individual imaginations and fostering community participation. Whether offering people their first experience with live theater or opera, providing workshops and special enrichment projects for young people that include theater, art, movie-making, circus performance and gardening, or initiating discussions of local and global political issues, TSL is always looking to set off the spark that benefits and alters individual lives."

    "At its location in Hudson, TSL is both a beacon for change in Upstate New York and a national model, providing its community with an arts organization that is committed to constructing relationships on a local level."
