Working to Restore the Nation's River

Draining a nine-million-acre area including the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the Potomac River is the second-largest tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. The river crosses five geological provinces—portraying the diversity of eastern forest ecosystems—and is affected by nearly 5 million residents. Their actions today will determine the health of the watershed tomorrow.
