Kosciusko county Soil and Water Conservation District is excited to announce that Brendan Kearns will be the featured speaker at the 61st Annual Meeting on February 20, 2018, at 6:30pm at 2517 banquet facility.  Brendan is an enthusiast of the Wabash River, and the rich history that is tied to it.  His focus is the Vigo, Vermillion, Sullivan and Parke county area. An avid photographer, he captures nature’s beauty as it unfolds during his adventures on the river.  As an ardent story teller, he enjoys presenting about the Wabash River to anyone who will listen.  This love of the Wabash River has led him to his job as the Conservation Program Specialist for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Healthy Rivers Initiative.  In this position he helps to educate Wabash Valley residents about our important natural resource and conservation programs. Brendan’s photography of the Wabash River and its wildlife can be seen on his Facebook page and his website BrendanKearns.com. One of his most famous videos is “Asian Carp” which captured this invasive species on the Wabash River in 2010 and currently has over 20 million views on YouTube. Brendan resides in Vigo County with his wife Sarah and daughter Mia. Brendan serves his community on the County Council and is involved with many organizations including the Ouabache Land Conservancy. Tickets for the SWCD annual meeting are $15.00/person and must be purchased ahead of time.  They can be obtained at the SWCD office, 217 E Bell Drive, Warsaw, 574-267-7445 x3.
