What is a watershed?

A watershed is the land area that drains into a downstream waterbody. All watersheds are living, breathing systems full of interrelationships that connect soil, water, plants and animals to each other. The living parts of a watershed range from tiny plants and animals in the lakes that support large and small fish to the rich soil that allow plants and crops to grow.
