Chad Brown founded Soul River Inc. to connect youth and veterans to our public lands and wild rivers. The goals were to build community, provide healing and inspire the next generation of ambassadors for outdoor conservation. Chad will speak about Soul River's mission and trips, including their 2016 deployment to the Owyhee River and to the Arctic, and show a documentary about his work to protect freshwater resources.
Chad's work has taken him across the country to speak about connecting people, particularly youth of color, to the outdoors. Additionally, he has presented to key city leaders, state representatives, and officials about diversity, conservation, and building collaborative relationships between nonprofit and for-profit businesses.
