Know Our Watershed Before We Act
By understanding our local watershed (its geographic boundaries, our activities, how land is used, and how this affects local bodies of water – and subsequently, our drinking water and health, food supply, and the well-being of the environment), we can identify the resources that have to be repaired, replaced, conserved and protected.

Whatever environmental advocacy you are involved in, they all affect our watersheds. Please document your Happy and Sad Places in Nature through Photographs or Drawings, Maps, and Writing, and learn about your Local Watershed. More information is available at www.greenarmynetwork.net.
