Down The Cuyahoga River

The Cuyahoga River is so much more than a fire that occurred nearly 50 years ago. It lives and breathes, supplies us with life, recreation, and employment — along with so much more.

Rick Jackson explores the various parts of the river and how it affects our lives. In this chapter, Rick begins at its headwaters to explore the wildlife in the region. He then travels south to see how the Cuyahoga’s water becomes Akron’s water supply. Then, he finally stops by R.Shea Brewing to see how that water is brewed into beer.
