The story of the Christina River shows why conservation is important and highlights some beautiful Delaware scenery. Though it isn’t a particularly long river, in its 35 miles it crosses a huge portion of the First State. From its rise in Chester County, Pennsylvania, it winds into Cecil County, Maryland, and then back into Delaware through Newark, Newport, the edge of the White Clay Creek area, the tips of the Brandywine Valley, and finally into the Delaware River at the Port of Wilmington.
