Bryan Brown learned to love paddling on Indiana’s White River and that joy has become a life-long passion.
Now regarded as an eco-adventure traveler, Bryan will speak at Holliday Park at 1 p.m., Sunday, March 6. The event is hosted by Friends of the White River in partnership with Holliday Park and is free to the public.
Bryan successfully completed the first-ever solo unsupported descent of the entire 2,400-mile Colorado River watershed in 2013. The Green River/Colorado River watershed features some of the most fabled and remote whitewater passages on earth — Dinosaur National Monument, Desolation Canyon, Cataract Canyon, Grand Canyon and Westwater Canyon.
He also completed a solo 57-day, 2,300-mile source-to-mouth kayak expedition of the Yukon River from Lewellyn Glacier near Atlin, British Columbia to the Bering Sea. Bryan also made the longest self-supported descent of Canada’s MacKenzie River.
His presentations often focus on strategic water-use issues. Bryan is a native Hoosier and an IU graduate.
