Expedition Susquehanna: WVIA Documentary Preview

On June 18, 2006 a dozen future agricultural leaders from Pennsylvania embarked on a 444-mile trip down the Susquehanna River to the Chesapeake Bay.

The journey, hosted by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), began at the Susquehanna's headwaters in Cooperstown, New York, snaked its way through Pennsylvania, and continued to Maryland and its final destination, the Chesapeake Bay.  En route, the participants, all member of the Future Farmers of America (FFA), learned about water quality concerns on the main stem of the mighty Susquehanna and its tributaries and the connection between communities and their creeks. They visited with local watershed groups and environmental activists, who shared information about the impact of agriculture, abandoned mine drainage, and other topics. They even had the chance to fly-fish, snorkel, and share in local festivities along the way.
