Know Your Watershed Week

Do you get your water from a well or a reservoir? If it comes from a well your water comes from groundwater (water stored underground).

Where do you think groundwater comes from?

If your water comes from a reservoir, which reservoir does it come from? What feeds that reservoir?

To know your watershed is to love it.

The first annual Know Your Watershed Week April 28 -May 6 will celebrate the Yuba, Bear and American River watersheds with many activities including a series of BYLT BioBlitzes, school programs, hikes, restoration activities, poetry, a run, and more!

Throughout the week, people of all ages will learn which watershed they live in, discover organizations that support conservation of local creeks and rivers, and enjoy a number of different outdoor experiences in the watershed.
