Chad Pregracke, 2013 CNN Hero of the Year, is the founder of Living Lands & Waters (LL&W), the only “industrial strength” river clean-up organization in the world. Since 1998, with the help over 98,000 volunteers, LL&W has removed over 9.1 million pounds of debris from 23 rivers across 20 states. They have also planted over one million trees, cleared evasive plant species, and created watershed conservation initiatives. Come meet Chad and learn about the sustainability efforts, challenges, and entrepreneurial endeavors of a non-profit environmental organization that faces the monumental task of protecting, preserving and restoring America’s major rivers and waterways.
