Mission on The Mississippi
- Chad Pregracke, Environmentalist
Chad Pregracke literally grew up on the Mississippi River. Maybe that’s why he took the job of cleaning it so personally. In 1998, when Chad was only 23, he took on the task that no one else would, and he did it by himself—at first, anyway. Over the past 19 years, he’s acquired a lifetime of adventures on the river, and developed a network of 98,000 volunteers to clean up 23 rivers across the country.
Chad Pregracke took on the cleaning of the Mississippi single-handedly and has removed almost 10 million pounds of garbage from our Nation’s Rivers.
