An Inspiring Story of Hands-on River Cleaning

When Chad Pregracke was 22, his frustration with the multitudes of trash in and around the Mississippi River began to boil over. A little more than a decade later, he’s taking charge with a nonprofit organization and help from a cadre of volunteers. Look out, river pollution — they’re hosting river cleaning events, educational workshops, and improving riverbottom wildlife habitat. Here’s Chad’s story, from his childhood on the Mississippi to today’s tireless quest to keep it and others across the country from being treated like sewers and landfills.
