Watersheds

A watershed is an area of land that catches rain and snow and drains or seeps into a marsh, stream, river, lake or groundwater.

Homes, farms, cottages, forests, small towns, urban centres, and more can make up watersheds.

Some watersheds cross municipal, provincial, and even international borders. They come in all shapes and sizes and can vary from millions of acres, like the land that drains into the Great Lakes, to a few acres that drain into a pond.
