Not sure what a watershed is? A watershed is an area of land that captures rainfall and other precipitation. Drop by drop, water is channeled into soils, groundwater, creeks and streams, making its way to larger bodies of water.
Thank you to the following organizations for partnering with the Community Foundation on this event: DeKalb County Soil & Water Conservation District, Northern Illinois University Department of Geography, and the DeKalb County Watershed Steering Committee.
