Environmental Activism Since 1969
New York City Friends of Clearwater, Inc. is a chartered sloop club of the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. We support Clearwater by teaching to protect the Hudson River and related waterways and shores, including New York Harbor through education, advocacy, and celebration.
We have most recently been involved in educating and organizing around the issues of Hydrofracturing and the dangers of Indian Point nuclear facility. NYCFC's focus and energy is Environmental Education, emphasizing what each person can do to help affect changes they want to see. We have taught in schools, and educate at street fairs, in public forums, and at festivals throughout New York City. We educate NYCFC members and the public during our monthly meetings and our annual sail on the sloop Clearwater. We let people know about some of the problems facing the environment and simple things that everyone can do to help.
Bring your friends with you!
