What is colourless, odourless, tasteless, and the only substance on the planet that can occur naturally as a solid, liquid and gas? It’s water! Water is all around us and is the most important resource on earth because everything living creature needs it to survive.

When you first hear the term ‘watershed,’ you may picture a storage building that holds water, but this isn’t the type of watershed we’re talking about. Did you know that every person lives in a watershed? Every rain drop or snowflake that lands in a watershed becomes part of the hydrologic cycle. A healthy watershed will act as a sponge, slowly absorbing and releasing water.
