While most of us are staying at home in order to slow the spread of the covid-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2), it’s important to stay in touch, and to stay inspired to create good in the world. The following are some online resources we believe can help.

- Latest News – The latest goings on at Clearwater
- Clearwater Music – Music made by and around Clearwater
- Pete Seeger – Music by our founder, Pete Seeger
- Environmental Action – Environmental advocacy by Clearwater and around issues Clearwater cares about
