Why are Watersheds important?

Watersheds are more than just drainage areas in and around our communities. They are necessary to support habitat for plants and animals, and they provide drinking water for people and wildlife. They also provide the opportunity for recreation and enjoyment of nature.

Protection of the natural resources in our watershed is essential to maintain the health and well being of all living things, both now and in the future.
