Folksinger Pete Seeger founded Clearwater over 40 years ago to teach people about the ecology and special heritage of the Hudson River. Join Clearwater educators to raise the sails on the schooner Mystic Whaler, set your course using charts and compass, and set off to to explore the Hudson as a citizen scientist. Identify the amazing variety of fish and invertebrates living beneath the waves; sample plankton; perform basic water quality tests; and learn about environmental issues impacting this important ecosystem. Enjoy sailing on-board a tall ship, sing some traditional sea songs, and enjoy a day of science on the Harbor that you’ll never forget.
