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 www.epa.gov/waterdata/hows-my-waterway.
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 www.eenorthcarolina.org/resources/river-basin-program
Learn more about Science in your watershed at the US Geological Service site https://water.usgs.gov/wsc/index.html
