Learn about your watershed

A watershed is an area of land where all of the water that drains off of or flows underneath it collects to the same place (such as a river). We all live in a watershed. You can learn about yours on EPA’s How’s My Waterway site

A river basin makes up all the land around a river, and contains many nested smaller watersheds.  Learn about North Carolina’s 17 river basins with the NC Office of Environmental Education 

Learn more about Science in your watershed at the US Geological Service site
