Pete Seeger is the Hudson River's most famous advocate.

He has been holding fund-raising concerts to help "build a boat to save the river" for over 40 years. It started with the sloop Clearwater in 1966. In 1969 the City of Beacon granted the Beacon Sloop Club use of what was then the ferry diner on the waterfront. In 1978 the Woodie Guthrie was built, and sloop club members regularly take the public out on sails and train volunteers to help maintain and crew the boat.
