Surf Your Watershed DLESE Reviewed Collection
Surf Your Watershed is a service to help you locate, use, and share environmental information about your state and watershed. There are four components to the site. Clickable maps, zipcode look-ups and plance name searches provide access to local watershed information. A searchable database offers information on the Adopt a Watershed campaign, a project that challenges citizens and organizations to work to protect valuable watersources through local and regional activities such as volunteer monitoring, cleanups and restoration projects. The Watershed Atlas is a catalog of geo-spatial displays and analyses of information and data important for watershed protection and restoration. You can use the catalog by geography, theme, key word, and source/organization or your own words. Finally, the Environmental Website database contains hundreds of URLs about environmental information.
