Healthy Rivers Start at Home

The Rappahannock River begins its over 180 mile journey at Chester Gap in the Blue Ridge Mountains, draining 2,715 square miles of land to the Chesapeake Bay.

Healthy rivers start with kids

Healthy Rivers Start at Home is an action-driven program that Friends of the Rappahannock developed years ago for
community members to use within their homes and
neighborhoods. The program includes ideas for conserving
water and improving water quality through various actions. Some of the actions homeowners and business owners can implement include installing rain barrels at the base of downspouts, testing yard soils for nutrient levels, and building living shorelines to create habitat along the river’s banks.

Academy” (M2B). This year was a full house as 29 teachers from across our watershed and beyond came to Fredericksburg for the second of four weekend courses focused on watershed education!
