Henrico County Administrative Board Room, 4301 East Parham Road, Henrico, VA 23228
Ages 8+. There is no foot trail that crosses Virginia from west to east, so Laurel Williamson decided to create her own. In 2012, she cobbled together her own route by road, trail, and boat to explore her home state of Virginia from mountain to sea. Although Laurel originally dreamed up this trip for the sake of adventure, it turned into an opportunity to learn more about some of the state’s special waterways and meeting other Virginians involved in protecting them. In this presentation, Laurel will share photos and stories of some of those special encounters.
