2019 Keynote Speakers Mike and Jenny Fiebig - 7pm at Star Hall
In 2018 the Fiebigs completed a human-powered, 5-month, 1800-mile source to sea trip on the Green and Colorado rivers in a custom-built dory named the “Green River.” Along the way, they interviewed a diverse group of people about their connections to the river and to one another, from ranchers in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, to people restoring sections of the Colorado River Delta in Mexico. Whether you’re curious about the current state of the river system, planning your own through-paddle, or reestablishing connection in a disconnecting world, this talk is sure to be inspiring. Hosted in conjunction with the USU Center for Colorado River Studies and American Rivers.
