At the age of 23, Chad founded Living Lands & Waters, a not-for-profit organization based in East Moline, Illinois, dedicated to cleaning up and preserving our nationís rivers. Today, the organization has grown to include 10 full-time employees and a fleet of 4 barges. Since the projectís inception, Chad, his crew, and over 60,000 volunteers have collected over 6 million pounds of debris from our nationís greatest rivers. Chad will be sharing experiences of his years cleaning Americaís rivers.
