An Upstream Journey
After four and a half years in Washington DC fighting to protect critical environmental laws and our natural treasures, I have resigned from my job in the U.S. House of Representatives.
I’m stashing my wardrobe of suits and ties in the depths of my closet. I’m trading in fancy cocktails for a whiskey-filled flask, hors d’oeuvres for protein bars, and my Ikea bed for a sleeping bag. I am hitting the road.
For the next six months I will be traversing the United States and Canada – from the salt flats of the Florida Keys to the Kenai Peninsula’s glacial rivers in Alaska – exploring the upstream battle to protect wild fish and their habitat.
