I would love to see this documentary, it looks fascinating. Tom Mayer began the journey to create this documentary after his son asked him “What is a scenic river?” as they drove past a sign one day. The inquiry led him to visit all fourteen designated river systems in the state of Ohio. He learned along the way the history of Ohio's nationally precedent-setting river conservation efforts.
