Coming this fall to Blue Ridge PBS!


The New River winds its way through three states, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina, and countless communities who have depended on its bounty for generations. At 360 miles in length, the river is designated an American Heritage River and is part of the National Wild and Scenic River System. It is an ancient river, and one of the five oldest rivers in the world.

Blue Ridge PBS has partnered with the New River Conservancy to tell the story of this magnificent waterway via stunning videography, fascinating interviews,  and engaging stories from many whose lives are rooted along the New. Why is this such an important river system, and why do we need to protect it?

The answers and much more coming soon in THE STORY OF THE NEW RIVER.
