Pete McBride Photography
Embark on a electrifying journey with The Nature Conservancy on Wednesday, March 29 at the 2017 Austin Conservation Luncheon! This rousing afternoon will feature award-winning National Geographic photographer Pete McBride, a seasoned traveler who’s trekked through 65 countries and roamed all seven continents.
McBride will lead guests on Adventures on the Wild River, a breathtaking account of his voyages along the Colorado River. With its dramatic canyons and whitewater rapids, the 1,450-mile Colorado is a study in stark beauty—but its crisp waters also provide drinking water for more than 30 million people. McBride’s commitment to protecting the Colorado River makes him a perfect fit for the 22nd annual luncheon.
The Nature Conservancy strives to conserve water both in Texas and globally. In Texas, the organization has protected over 200 miles of rivers and streams. With more than 500 freshwater project sites around the world, the Conservancy is changing the way we approach and develop solutions to some of the greatest freshwater challenges.
