“The James River Watershed encompasses approximately 10,000 square miles, which makes up almost 25% of the state. It is home to one-third of all Virginians who live in its 39 counties and 19 cities and towns, and touches the lives of more Virginians than any other feature on the landscape.”

In this Solo podcast, Frank takes us on a journey through the watershed. He starts at his house and follows the water all the way to the James River (which then continues on to the Chesapeake Bay and out into the Atlantic Ocean).  Learn why it’s important not to throw pollutants in your yard and find out where your drinking water comes from. Come on, let’s go trekkin’!
