The Quad Cities' own Chad Pregracke, founder of Living Lands & Waters, will be riding up to the stage in the wagon later in the evening to welcome everyone to River Roots Live.  Chad will be available for comment this evening (Thursday, Aug. 11) at the Living Lands & Waters Barge Party taking place at the Lake Davenport Sailing Club from 5:30 - 9:00 p.m.  All media are welcome to attend; please visit the media tent by the barge upon your arrival.
