How the River Flows explores the relationship between healthy forests and clean drinking water. You’ll hear from entrepreneurs and experts who will share their best ideas and use cases about conserving local forests while ensuring a lasting, clean supply of drinking water downstream.
In every episode, we’ll bring you a new take on how landowners are financially compensated for the tremendous environmental value that their family-owned forests provide to everyone.
How the River Flows is produced by Keeping Forests with Lee Schneider and supported by the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities. The Endowment works collaboratively with partners in the public and private sectors to identify innovative and transformative ways to support the health and vitality of our forests and the communities that rely on them. Music by Chuck Leavell.
