River Conservationist Brings Awareness To Clean Water By Swimming The Boise
Water quality advocate Christopher Swain is as passionate about clean water as he is about swimming. To bring attention to the need to conserve our waterways, Swain will swim the Boise River from its source in the Sawtooth Range to its confluence with the Snake River - more than one hundred miles. The effort is being sponsored by the Gem State's newest conservation stakeholder, Idaho Business for the Outdoors. We talk with Swain and Idaho Business for the Outdoors about the value of keeping our rivers and lakes clean.
