Pete Seeger, strumming a banjo on the bow of the Clearwater sloop.  He and a group of volunteers raised $150,000 to build the vessel and used it to dramatize the fight against pollution in the Hudson River Valley.

I remember walking along the shore, often finding the bones of unfortunate creatures who drank from the water.
