what i learned about watersheds is spectacular. I learned that they help protect the environment and are found around swampy areas. Watersheds are really cool. They also sometimes give animals homes. Water sheds come down on a drift. Which basically is like a mountain where it makes it come down off a ledge.
11/5/2014 02:25:39 am
The watershed is the place that has clean water in a body of water. There are so many things we can do to protect our watersheds. Like don't throw your trash in the ocean. Also don't use pest asides on your lawn. The the pest-asides get washed away when it rains and it flows into our drinking water. Our watersheds basically is what lets us live everyday. We get our water from w watersheds. Watersheds are essential to life.
11/7/2014 05:40:54 am
Watersheds are very important. Watersheds are areas of land that drains to a single body of water. When it rains water moves down slope by the force of gravity. Watersheds becomes polluted by litter, fertilizers, pesticides and oil. Watersheds are important because watersheds hold water. If there were no places to store water floods would occur.
11/8/2014 12:33:01 am
I learned that all of the water supply we use in Galloway comes from the Mullica River Watershed. It's important to take care of them so we can conserve the water for the future when we're going to need it. Also, there are some countries which don't have water like we do, so we should use it wisely and carefully in case we have any natural disasters.
11/10/2014 12:05:45 am
I learned that watersheds are a very important part of our environment. Another important fact I learned about our watershed was all the water in the lakes or ponds are filtered into a large body of water. If we take care of our watershed it protects the quality of our drinking water.
11/11/2014 12:27:54 am
What I learned about watersheds is that they help the environment be cleaner than what it is and helps collect water from rain showers not flood the areas. There important because they clean up all the trash in the environment from rain showers and from peoples bad behaviors towards the environment like littering. To collect all the water they put basins out in some areas so they collect water from the previous rain showers and that prevents floods in lots of areas
11/11/2014 12:32:10 am
I learned that a watershed is a n area of land that drains to a particular body of area.It is important to take care of them because if we dont all of the pollution would drain into the water witch could cause animals in the body of water to die.
11/11/2014 12:32:28 am
I learned that watersheds are an area or ridge of land that separates waters flowing to different body's of water. It is important to protect them because they are a very important part of nature.
11/11/2014 12:33:26 am
First of all, lets talk about what a watershed is. A watershed is an area of land that drains to a particular body of water. Our watershed is important because it drains all of the water. If we didn't have our watershed our streets could get flooded and maybe even the school parking lot. Also our watersheds help our environment. I learned that our watersheds could get damaged by gasoline and cars and that we should protect our watersheds.
11/11/2014 05:35:07 am
I learned a lot about watersheds this year, I learned that it's really bad to pollute because it kills all of are fish and animals that drink from the water. It's impotant to keep our the earth clean so nobody is in danger of drinking pallutted water.
11/11/2014 05:44:28 am
A watershed is an area of land that drains rain water or snow into one location such as a stream, lake or wetland. These water bodies supply our drinking water, water for agriculture and manufacturing, offer opportunities for recreation and provide habitat to numerous plants and animals. Unfortunately various forms of pollution, including runoff and erosion, can interfere with the health of the watershed. Therefore, it is important to protect the quality of our watershed.
11/11/2014 05:45:08 am
Water sheds are ponds or lakes that are not manmade by use and are important to us. When thretend by garbage,oil,bug posion,and meny more so to protect them we need to not litter,change our oil for our cars and look if the car is leaking oil, look at the weather to see if its going to rain before useing bug posion. Those are some ways to protect our watersheds.
11/11/2014 06:01:20 am
I learned that there are two different types of watersheds, the detention and retention. The detention watershed holds water temporarily while the retention watershed holds water permanently. I also learned that Mr.B's is part of the Mullica river watershed, and that Mr.B's has detention and retention watersheds. While at the presentation, it was mentioned that watersheds are very important to the ecosystem, but like all things they are being polluted. Why are they so important? It keeps the surrounding areas from flooding. Without the watershed, the land would flood more quickly, so much so that we could potentially swim in it. Not only that, but it provides a whole ecosystem of its own, and without it all those animals will be " homeless." That is why it is so important to protect the watershed. From the presentation I also learned about all the things that can pollute the watershed, such as scat, litter, and even fertilizer. Finally, I learned that there are two types of pollution sources, point and non point. Point means that you can easily identify the source while nonpoint you can't. That is what I learned during this presentation.
11/11/2014 07:58:13 am
Watershed is an area of land that drains to a body of water. The water goes from a high point and flows down to a low point that is a sea. The watershed can also become polluted really quickly and easily. For example: the water will pick up tradh on it's way down to the sea, and another one is there is also oil, fertilizer, pesticides, and soil that the water will also pick up on it's journey. There are also ways to protect the watershed too, for example build ponds/lakes, clean up trash if u see it, recycle, and plant trees and plants.
11/11/2014 09:14:36 am
I learned that a watershed is an area of land were all the water in an area goes to.It is important that we take care of them because watersheds are were we get our water from.To keep our watersheds clean ,we have to recycle our trash and try not to use chemicals or fertilizers on grass and plants ect,because when it rain the water takes the trash and chemicals with it to the watersheds.So trash and chemicals end up in our water.
11/11/2014 09:17:08 am
I learned many things about watersheds and why it is important to take care of them. First, I learned that Mr.B's Backyard Classroom is a watershed. A watershed is a section of land that collects water, which is later drained into a specific body of water. Also, I learned that watersheds could be easily polluted. During the presentation, the class put "trash" on the display of the watershed. When we sprayed water on the model, the "trash" was pushed into the watershed. The water in the model became brown and polluted. This was a small scale version of what happens when people litter. Next, I learned that watersheds can cross extremely long distances. Some watersheds, such as the Mississippi River watershed, cross over multiple states. Finally, I learned that it is important to protect watersheds. Without them, water would not reach certain places. Animals or plants living around watersheds would eventually die. Watersheds supply drinking water and water for farming, too. I learned many things about watersheds and why it is important to take care of them.
11/11/2014 09:26:20 am
I learned that watersheds are an important source for our environment. Not only that, I learned that watersheds are areas of land that drain to one water source. Watersheds can be lakes, rivers, oceans, and even creeks. Watersheds are important to take care of because if we don't take care of them, we can get infected too, not just the watersheds. To provent that we can stop littering, recycle, pick up after your pets, don't remove to many plants and trees, and clean up around the water and land.
11/11/2014 11:02:16 am
It's important to take care of watersheds because they help the environment. Mr.B's backyard classroom is part of the Mullica river watershed.
11/11/2014 07:55:50 pm
I learned that watersheds is an area of land that separates waters flowing to different rivers, basin, or seas. It's important to take care of watersheds. What we do to the watershed is going to affect the water. Water is very important to us so we protect watersheds from dangers like trash going in the water. It's going to affect our life style too.
11/12/2014 12:32:20 am
When Jessica showed us her representation on watersheds, it really sent a strong message about the environment. I learned many things, including what a watershed is. A watershed is an area of land that drains to a particular body of water. We need to protect our watershed, because it can become overly polluted by many things. Examples are littering, pesticide, fertilizer, dirt, oil, and dog waste. We need to try to keep our watershed as clean as possible because we drink that water! Also, we use it for many other important reasons and all of us want to live in a healthy, clean, Earth. Last, Mr. B's!! Mr. B's helps us explore and experience things we have never seen before, and if it is trashed and polluted, it will be hard to enjoy it.
11/12/2014 03:53:32 am
What I learned about the watershed is that whatever we do to the land like fertilizing the lawn, it will most likely end up in a body of water. So it is important to make sure we use the right amount or we are contaminating the water that many animals live in and drink. So it is important to watch what we do to the land and put on it.
11/12/2014 04:06:29 am
I learned that in Mr. B's that water shed is an area of land that drains to a particular body of water. The reason why you should take care of them is because they protect our ecosystems.
11/12/2014 04:10:41 am
I learned that the watershed is very important to the earth! Its important to take care of them because we need them!
11/12/2014 04:11:32 am
In Mr.B's backyard class room we learned a lot about watersheds and how they help the environment. One way that help is by keeping the environment clean. Another way is by keeping the water level stable so it doesn't overflow. Those are a few things I learned about the watersheds.
11/12/2014 04:15:52 am
Watersheds need to be protected.Its important to take care of watersheds is so that the watersheds don't become polluted.The watersheds can become polluted by trash,gas,smoke,global warming,oil,chemicals and non human poop.We can protect these watersheds by picking litter,not littering,picking up after our pets,cleaning up,not over fertilizing,planting a tree,and don't remove vegetation.
11/12/2014 04:18:58 am
I have learned that it is important to take care of watersheds because of floods and storms. The water goes downhill to watersheds and gathers up. This is what prevents floods.
11/12/2014 04:22:08 am
What i learned about watersheds and why i should take care of them is critical. Watersheds help with floods and storms. They prevent floods from happening.
11/12/2014 04:30:12 am
I learned that from littering,not cleaning up dog business, and oil from cars. We should protect the because watersheds supply fresh water that we can drink. So if people pollute these watersheds there will be less fresh water that can be supplied for us, and other living objects.
11/12/2014 04:30:15 am
I learned a lot about watersheds that day. Watersheds carry waste
11/12/2014 04:32:58 am
A line of hills that rivers drain water from. It is important to keep watersheds safe because it will help the future of our community and will keep the animals safe.
11/12/2014 04:35:00 am
One thing I learned about watersheds is that they are polluted every year by pollutants. Some examples are: when you put fertilizer on your plants, when it rains, some of the fertilizer flows into a body of water. It is important to take care of watersheds because the creatures that live there wont be able to "breathe" in good water.
11/12/2014 04:54:32 am
I learn some cool facts about the watershed and for the people who have not learn about it yet I'll tell you. A watershed is an area that drains in a single body of water. I learned that the watershed helps prevent flooding and that Mr.B's backyard is part of the Mullica watershed. I also learned that It's important to take care of the watersheds because it prevents flooding, gives wildlife homes, and it would be cool for future generation's to see. That is what I learned about the watersheds.
11/12/2014 04:55:58 am
I learned that a watershed is an area of land that drains to a particular body of water. It is very important to take care of because you do not want your water poluted . Also it will effect your environment that's you live in and you don't want that.
11/12/2014 05:23:30 am
The last time we went to Mr. B's back yard we learned about watersheds. A watershed is a part of that drains water to one body of water. It is important to take care of watersheds because they drain out to the ocean and when it rains all of the trash,oil,pesticides,dirt and other pollutants are drained into the ocean. That is why it is important to take care of watersheds.
11/12/2014 05:25:51 am
To keep the watersheds clean, we must also keep the environment clean. To do that we must not litter. We must also help the environment to grow. Because the effect of this would be flooding and the water in lakes and rivers and pond would be contaminated.
11/12/2014 05:28:08 am
I learned the waste on earth that goes into watersheds like pesticides. It is important to keep the watershed clean because it protects are ecosystem and fro floods.
11/12/2014 05:30:51 am
i learn the hole Nj has been put in groups that we tack care of.It is importune we take care of it because we live in it.
11/12/2014 05:44:04 am
in the watersheds I know now is Mr. B's has a watershed . this important in many reasons it is important . one reason is watersheds are used for fresh that is used in every day lives for drinking, bathing and food. this important take care for many reasons for helping the animals around us and plants that we need and may not know about
11/12/2014 06:19:34 am
This is what I learned about watersheds and why its important to take care of them. One thing I learned about watersheds is that they are streams of water that lead to an ocean of clean water. Another thing I learned is that Mr. B's backyard is part of a watershed. It is important to take care of them because if you don't animals will be harmed. Another reason is that the water will become dirty. That is what I learned about watersheds and why we should take care of them.
11/12/2014 06:20:38 am
Something that I learned about watersheds is that watersheds are important and that we should protect them.Another thing that I learned about watersheds is that watersheds are an area of land that drains to a particular body of water. It is important to take care of watersheds because it supplies our drinking water. Another reason why it is important to take care of them is because those that are provided with habitats is plants and animals.
11/12/2014 06:28:24 am
I learned many things about watershed from the volunteers presentation. One example is that watershed helps the Earth from flooding as it emptys water into river basins and ponds (mr.B's) so the water level stays down. Watershed is important so our environment doesn't become polluted with pollution . As we all now the world around us does not and should not have more than the amount of pollution that we have now. Also it helps the water level stay Down so floods don't effect natures pure beauty.
11/12/2014 07:14:32 am
I learned that water sheds were not actually sheds filled with water.(Which may, or may NOT have surprised me) No! Actually, water sheds are the areas of land where all of the water that is under it or drains off of it goes into the same place. Go figure. But regardless of weather or not these are sheds filled with water or just land, we need to protect them. Water sheds are the land around us, and we can not just go around polluting them, because they are a vital part of our community.
11/12/2014 08:12:14 am
What I learned about watersheds was that all of the trash and oil on the streets eventually gets into the ocean. It is important to take care of the watersheds because when the trash and oil gets into the water then the fish and turtles will eat then die and then without the fish and animals in the ocean then dolphins won't be able to eat the fish then sharks and whales have nothing to eat and it goes on and on
11/12/2014 08:17:04 am
The watersheds play a big role in our society by keeping our water clean of litter and pollution.I believe it is important to take care of our watershed because it is what keeps our water clean and provides us with drinking water.Another reason we should keep our watershed clean because we live within the Mullica River Watershed which is the most pristine watershed around.Some things we could use less is products with chemicals such as fertilizer soil and much more.Being a part of a pristine water shed is a good thing but keeping it clean is a big responsibility all by itself.
11/12/2014 08:31:24 am
I learned that watersheds were important and needed to be protected.They needed to be protected due to the fact they connect from all over the world.Ways you can prevent this can be by checking if your car is leaking out oil.Also by throwing your stuff in the trash instead of the floor.
11/12/2014 09:13:02 am
I learned many things about water sheds, and many reasons on why they are important. First of all, watersheds are areas of land that drains a particular part of a body of water. Without watersheds, many of our oceans,lakes, and ponds would be polluted and contaminated. Earth has only 2.5% of freshwater, and of that percent only 0.3% is found in surface waters. Humans are polluting that 0.3% of water by littering,air pollution, oil leaks, and the use of pesticides and fertilizer. The runoff water would flow into the lake, with dangerous and harmful chemicals. With out watersheds, our fresh water and salt water would be polluted.Everybody should help, it only takes an extra second to throw away garbage. Just by doing that, it gives the pie another piece. The pie is finally finished when we restore Earth's glory, and who doesn't enjoy pie? Protecting watersheds is a big part in the environment.
11/12/2014 09:35:27 am
It is important because watersheds aren't common also because of the fish and wildlife. so we should never pollute or dump waste in the water because if it gets too polluted they will have to fill it up
11/12/2014 10:03:40 am
When our watershed ambassador came to Mr. B's I learned a lot about the watershed's importance. I never knew how easy it was to pollute. Did you know trash, and soils are actually pollutants? I was unaware of that! I also just found out that we have two basins in Mr. B's. We have one retention basin (holds water and prevents floods. A retention basin also increases ground water,) and a detention basin, (it temporarily holds water and prevents most flooding.) I also had no idea Mr. B's Backyard is a guest to the Mullica River watershed. Lastly, we should really protect Mr. B's and out watershed. Let's all protect the wildlife down in the water, and keep our water free from pollutants. Want motivation? Just think, if we let our watershed become polluted, we could one day be drinking our own trash and litter. This is why it is important to take care of watersheds.
11/12/2014 10:09:49 am
What I learned about watersheds was that a watershed becomes polluted by litter, oil, chemicals, pesticide, etc. It is important to protect our watershed because we should protect our ecosystems from pollution.
11/12/2014 10:20:11 am
I learned that watersheds can be polluted by lots of things, even fertilizer. It is important take care of them because they can pollute the water we drink and kill or harm sea creatures
11/12/2014 10:26:26 am
What I learned about watersheds is that they are a area of land that drains to a particular body of water. Also, Mr. B's backyard is a part of the Mullica River Watershed and lead right out into that river. Some reasons to why we should protect the watersheds is to keep pollution out of our drinking water, and to keep the oceans and lakes clean for other creatures to live in. Some ways to prevent this is to recycle, plant trees, and to save power.
11/12/2014 10:40:23 am
During the visit to Mr. B's, I learned about what watersheds were and why we should protect the watershed at Mr. B's. A watershed is an area of land that drains to a particular body of water. At Mr. B's, there is a detention basin and retention basin. The detention basin temporarily holds water and the retention basin permanently holds water. Both of the basins are part of the Mullica River Watershed.
11/12/2014 10:41:53 am
During my time there I learnt a lot pollution comes from everywhere and it is very important to take care of it. It is important to take care of our watersheds because we need water to live and animals need it to live some even live in it.Even you can help with the protection of our waters by recycling and not dumping trash and drinks into the water. that is what I had learnt during my time at Mr.B's backyard
11/12/2014 08:13:26 pm
I learned that the watershed is huge and that means we have too take care of it because we need to drink the water, wash in the water, and cook with it. So if we don't take care of it we could die.
11/12/2014 08:48:41 pm
it was important because the water shed leads to our environment and species also we learn what can help us make our enviornment
11/12/2014 08:53:35 pm
When we went to Mr. B's to learn about watersheds, it's like learning about a whole new thing. At first I had no idea what was a watershed. I thought it was a shed of water. How silly of me! The visitor came in and talked to us about watersheds using a scale model of the environment. She told us that watersheds keep and hold water in the environment to avoid flooding. It was kind of like a shed of water spread throughout the environment. Another thing she told us was that it is very important to protect our local watershed from pollution, as pollution can affect our watershed and make water polluted and dirty. The watershed holds lots of water to avoid flooding. What's the use of holding all that water if it's becoming dirty and going to waste? The visitor was also talking to us about retention and detention basins, which both hold water. A detention basin holds water for a temporary time, while a retention basin keeps water in it. We learned all about watersheds that day. I don't even know if anyone in our class knew about watersheds until a visitor came in and taught us about it. It was really a new and interesting topic to learn about that day. The best part about it is that we went to Mr. B's to learn about it. Learning about watersheds that day truly made Mr B's an outside classroom!
11/12/2014 08:59:44 pm
What was the first thing that caught your eye when you entered Mr.B's backyard ?
11/12/2014 09:00:59 pm
How do watersheds become polluted ?
11/12/2014 10:34:17 pm
i learned that watersheds keep the environment safe and its in portent to take care of water sheds because if we don't the environment could be damaged with gases,poisons and harmful plants
11/12/2014 10:35:35 pm
Going to the Mr.Bee backyard classroom I learned so much about the water house I learned that you could help a lot of animals by not putting trash in the water or on the ground because the animals in the water an up on the land they could eat the trash the water poison the water and the animals drink the water swim in it could affect them so much as us to if we need the water to drink we could get poison to so what learned to day is that try to keep the earth healthy and try making animals live nicely with out getting sick or worse try recycling your trash as much as saving the animals water and us to try to do your best and help animals and keep from poisoning are water to through trash and keep are water healthy because if not more animals despair and are water wont be so healthy anymore so take it for really and keep water safe.
11/12/2014 10:35:47 pm
Watersheds are important because they teach us how to keep our environment clean. I learned a very important lesson on how to keep the world clean. Watershed ambassadors are people who help clean the most. If it wasn't for any of the watershed ambassadors then we wouldn't know what to clean up.
11/12/2014 10:36:51 pm
I learned about the watershed it that Mr.B's part of the Mullica river watershed because it is the cleanest river in new Jerseys. If the school does not keep it clean it will be duty.
11/12/2014 10:47:41 pm
The water shed presentation i learned that we have two water sheds in Mr.B's backyard. One that is just temporary for holding water so we don't flood...that is why you see the temporary one empty a lot of the time. The other one which is used all the time...Because it is never empty.The water shed if for collecting water that when it rains it run down the road and into storm drains because the road can not obsorb the water.
11/12/2014 11:11:17 pm
I learned in the watershed lesson that when people litter or spray posions on the ground, It affects lakes and ponds. It is important to take care of the watersheds because lakes and ponds will be dirty so the water is polluted and all the creatures will die in there that live there, which is bad. Another reason that place is closed something bad will happen. People should help the watersheds.
11/12/2014 11:38:06 pm
I learned that water sheds are very important to communities. We need to take care of them because if we don't then we wont have clean water. Water sheds are little rivers that pick up all of the trash and garbage that people litter when it rains and it leads to the ocean or a big lake.
11/12/2014 11:40:56 pm
I learned that the watersheds are important because all watersheds eventually end up in a large body of water. We have to keep the water clean or the water will be polluted with all the bad things we litter and pour directly into the water so we must keep it clean and healthy.
11/13/2014 12:02:22 am
What I learned about watersheds is that they are very important in our world. They are areas of water that all lead into the same place. I learned that if we don't keep our watershed clean, our oceans could be ruined. That's why it is important to take care of them.
11/13/2014 12:10:34 am
What i learned about watershed was that all of this liter and this society is not taking care of a lot. So all of the rain washes it into the ocean or lakes, and destroys fishes and ducks homes which is unfair. It is unfair because they cant do anything about it, and it could most likely kill their population and destroy the fish livestock.
11/13/2014 12:15:50 am
I liked it. She tought what mr.b's was for and why it was there. she showed us how all the pollution goes straight to the lakes, seas, and oceans. That some of the stuff we use everyday infects the environment.
11/13/2014 12:16:34 am
The thing i learn about the water shed that water gets polluted from littering and gasoline and other thing that can her the water shed. It is important to keep the water shed clean because there are animals that live in the water that people throw trash in.
11/13/2014 12:26:37 am
I learned that we are part of the mullica river watershed. I really liked the diagram she showed us I really did learn a lot about the watershed and how it works. I think the coolest part about that day was when we were able to pollute the watershed presentation that she showed us.
11/13/2014 12:31:33 am
I learned that watersheds are getting polluted by oil, animal droppings, and even dirt. Then when it rains, and floods it all goes in to the nearest watershed. This can pollute are water watershed and kill aquatic animals. These watersheds are important to not get polluted because they contain water that we need to survive. Also it can also get fish sick that we need to eat.
11/13/2014 12:35:25 am
A watershed is an area or ridge of land separates waters flowing to different bodies of water. At science we learned why it is important to take care of them, one reason is because it can help our drinking water be less polluted
11/13/2014 02:01:22 am
Watersheds are very important to us as people. It is were we live and whats us around us. We have to keep it clean because if we don't, our bodies of water we will be destroyed and so are will our animals ant there habitats. All the soil and pest-asides that we use will end up in our water. in 2020 we could be living in filth all around us! This is why I think that keeping our watershed is very important.
11/13/2014 02:02:37 am
What i learned from watershead was that each state has there own watershead.it is important to take good care of them because alot of times they get polluted.Its important to care for them and get them clean.
11/13/2014 05:14:00 am
I learned that water sheds are very important and that we get our water and food from them. Also I learned that if we litter and pollute the area that we live in, most of the trash, one way or another makes its way into our oceans. It's important to protect water sheds because we use them and also the animals around us do too. If we litter and dump waste into rivers then the fish we get will get contaminated and then us and animals can't fish there. Many animal depend on the water sheds to live and most of those animals are only native to New Jersey. Therefor if we pollute the water then those animal may become extinct, and I know we don't want that!
11/13/2014 07:05:38 am
Watersheds are places where water runs into instead of oceans, seas, lakes, or other bodies of water. We should take care of them because animals usually live in them because of the water in them

I learned that a watershed is the area of land where all of the water that is under it or drains and it goes into the same body of water such as a lake or a ocean. I also learned that a watershed wash down trash and litter, oil and gas, and fertilizer. This means that our bodies of water contain all this objects. I learned it's important because our Earth contains 70% of water and nearly 40% are polluted. This means that this water is not suitable for drinking, swimming, and living fishes. It is important that we have the watershed so we can drink from it and we could have living fishes for food. We really need watersheds in life.

Today we visited Mr.B's Backyard and watched a presentation on water sheds. Water sheds are areas of land that drain to a particular body of water. Its important to take care of the water sheds because they help prevent floods. I learned that there are two kinds of basins, a detention basin and a retention basin. The basins are where the water drains to.

Watersheds are an important prat of the environment. They give homes to many wild animals and plants. It is important that we take care of them so they can live on and provide food and materials we need for essential things in our lives.

I learned that it is important to take care of the watersheds, becouse I didn't know how much of an impact just some of the little things that we do have such a great impact of the watersheds.

A watershed is an area of land that drains to a particularly body of water. The water goes to a high point to a low point of a slope by gravity. Watersheds can be polluted by liter, oil, and gas etc. Point pollution is where you can point to the source and non point is where you can not point to the source. Watersheds are important to protect because without it the world would have more pollution. There are ways to protect the watershed. Some ways are to plant more trees, having watershed programs and not to liter. Watershed are important to the earth.

The thing I learned about watersheds is that watersheds are an area of land that drains a single water body, and it is important to care of watersheds so they don't become polluted.

A watershed is an area that runs into a common body of water. These include wetlands, lakes, streams, estuaries, aquifers, or even the ocean. Individual acts can affect any watershed. A watershed that leads into a body of water has a private and public sector. it is important to take care of a watershed because watersheds supplies drinking water. Animals need to be able to live in this water. Watersheds are suppliers for swimming water, drinking water, and animal existence. This is why it is important to keep watersheds clean.
I learned a lot about watersheds. One of the main things I learned is that if you don't take care of your watershed it can get very polluted very easily. Even the slightest hill can mean that things can run off into the water source -- like dog waste or human waste. Air pollution can mess up a watershed, too. For example, in Yellowstone National Park, when the wolves were not in the environment, it actually changed the course of the river. I was surprised that such a little thing could mess up the watershed. We can take care of them by not littering, be knowledgable about where the water goes and starts. I really enjoy Mr. B's Backyard and look forward to going out in it.

At Mr.B's back yard we learned about watersheds. I learned that its not good to leave trash laying around, so when I see a piece of trash laying on the ground I pick it up and put it in the trash.I also learned that oil can leak out of vehicles and get in to oceans,lakes,or ponds, and if it does it can kill all of the living things in there. Also when oil gets in to oceans or lakes it can get into our drinking water and we can die.
