We all live in a watershed

Watersheds are places we call home.

A watershed is an area of land that catches rain and snow and where water flows downward into a specific river, stream, lake, or aquifer (water in the ground).

Think about your local creek, river, or stream.

Where does it come from?

What type of landscapes does it pass through?

Where does the water in your backyard go?

All of the area covered is your watershed.
