OCT 18, 2012 – Activist musician Jack Johnson, who helped out with Farm Aid 2012, is hooking up with Waterkeeper Alliance and sharing stories of clean water through video. He talks of surfing with his dad to taking his children to waterways and the importance of the waterway being clean and healthy. In a press release Jack said, “Some of the earliest memories I have are these abstract things of being on the front of my dads surfboard – and one time pulling into a little bit of a tube. Water has been part of my life since the beginning. Its everything on the spectrum from a place my family goes to enjoy themselves, I take the kids there everyday, we go down and play in the water – its sort of meeting place for the families in our community. And that way, it kind of becomes the closest thing we have to a church – its a spiritual thing. The Waterkeeper Alliance is an amazing organization because you can get involved on your local level and you realize your making a change for good around the whole nation. All rives flow to the oceans.”
