The Education Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the development, coordination and implementation of all educational programs provided by Living Lands and Waters (LL&W). The Education Coordinator will encourage students’ awareness and appreciation of our nation’s riverways, broaden students’ knowledge of river ecosystems, and foster students’ commitment to the conservation, preservation, and protection of our natural environments. Every day looks different for an LL&W crew member. This isn’t your typical job – it’s a lifestyle. You must be willing to show up early and leave late. We’re in this mission for the long haul, whatever it takes.

Headquartered in East Moline, Illinois, Living Lands & Waters is a 501 (c)(3) environmental organization that was established by Chad Pregracke in 1998. Spending up to nine months a year living and traveling on the barge, the Living Lands & Waters’ crew hosts river cleanups, watershed conservation initiatives, workshops, tree plantings and other key conservation efforts. Since the organization was founded, Living Lands & Waters has grown to be the only “industrial strength” river cleanup organization like it in the world.
