Anacostia Riverkeeper Dottie Yunger says the river needs spiritual healing.

The Anacostia River is more than eight miles long and supports hundreds of species of birds and fish. But these days, you’re more likely to glimpse a soda bottle in these waters than you are a flying or finned creature. Dottie Yunger says that’s not just a shame... it’s a sin. Jessica Gould goes out on the river to meet a minister on a mission.

[Music: "Down to the River" by Ray LaMontagne from One Lonesome Saddle]
