What is a Watershed?
A watershed encompasses all the land surface that collects and drains water to a single point. Small watersheds are often nested in larger watersheds.
The watershed includes all the earth, water, plants, animals - shared by humans and non-human within the area. It encompasses all the area from ridge tops to stream bottoms, as well as the air above.
We all share the watershed. Everything we do and how we use the land affects the health of the water, soil and living things that coexist in this system.
