Chesapeake Footsoldiers

About This Episode


The Chesapeake Bay is North America’s largest estuary and was once its most productive. Runoff pollution from the Chesapeake’s enormous watershed has taken a heavy toll on people whose livelihoods rely on the Bay, but there are those quietly working to bring back the water quality.

Chesapeake Footsoldiers tells the stories of just a few of the unsung heroes who confront some of the Bay’s biggest challenges.
