About this Show

Living Downstream is a program for anyone who'd like to learn about environmental topics of interest in the Umpqua Watershed of southern Oregon, and the larger Pacific Northwest region. It is hosted by Viviana Young, current AmeriCorps member who is serving as Umpqua Watersheds' Environmental Education & Outreach Leader. We are excited to offer this show as a way to bring awareness of environmental issues to a wider audience. A new episode airs every-other-week.
