CNN just named their Hero of the Year… and he happens to be, what some have referred to as ‘the rivers’ garbageman’. Congratulations to Chad Pregracke! From the article:
For nine months out of the year, Pregracke lives on a barge with members of his 12-person crew. They go around the country with a fleet of boats, and they try to make cleanup fun for the volunteers who show up in each city.
It’s good to see a water quality warrior getting some major press. And, get this, CFWE’s second edition Citizen’s Guide to Colorado Water Quality Protection is hot off the press! We’ve been clear out of stock of our popular Water Quality Guide for about a year, but at long last you can now purchase and view an updated guide. Flip through the all new guide and place an order to secure your copy.
