Chickasawhay River - Leakesville

Take a trip down the Chickasawhay River in Southeast Mississippi and see why it is one of the most geologically important rivers  in Mississippi and possibly the world. Experts in Geology and Paleontology guide us down the river and explain how the sediment and fossils in this river can describe the history of the entire planet and tell a story that is millions of years old.
