WHY: Before there were Riverkeepers, there was Pete Seeger. Most commonly associated with American folk music, Pete’s passion for the Hudson River helped spawn not only the cleanup of that industrialized river but a whole organization to protect and restore rivers around the globe. Pete lived along the Hudson River with his wife, Toshi. Outraged by the pollution in the river, Pete and Toshi, along with other activists helped raise funds for boat, the Clearwater. The Clearwater served as hub of the Hudson River revival and it caught the attention of John Cronin, who became the first Riverkeeper. The connection to water, music, and organizing runs strong in the Waterkeeper movement. We owe a part of our existence to the passion, dedication and creatively of Pete Seeger. We hope you join us to celebrate his birthday and our Columbia River.
