Membership

NYC Friends of Clearwater, Inc. is a community
that is organized around:

EDUCATION
We inform the public at festivals, public events and our monthly meetings with in-depth information about environmental issues relating to the Hudson River and other NYC Waterways.  These issues include topics such as our drinking water, energy, climate change, toxic pollution and trade agreements. 

ADVOCACY
NYCFC uses a positive approach to environmental action by stating how improvements can be made. We meet with public and private agencies, community boards, and elected officials. We run letter writing and petitioning drives. We network with other organizations. Together, WE CAN IMPROVE our region and our world. NYCFC WOULD LIKE MORE ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS.

CELEBRATION
Celebrating our harbor takes many forms. We sing and share food and ideas at meetings, special events, and our annual sail on the majestic 106 foot Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. We share music, story telling, poetry, dance, art, etc; along with support for each other and the environment at monthly meetings Pasta Potpourris
