Day 10: Explore Your Home or School WatershedDay 10: Explore Your Home or School WatershedTake a walk as a family and examine your landscape and the streets of your neighborhood from the viewpoint of a watershed manager by mapping how stormwater flows through community. <div class="ExternalClassDE7726C5DE504ADF8D9C33F79F98F39D">A watershed is a land area on which water falls and then drains to a low point. Gravity is a powerful force on water, driving it across the low points of the land. On the 10th day of Water Awareness Month, you will get to explore the watershed of your home, community, and/or schoolyard.<div><ol><li><a href="http://www.discoverwater.org/explore-watersheds/" style="font-size:13px;">Explore Watersheds at DiscoverWater.org</a><span style="font-size:13px;">.</span><br></li><li>Print out a map of your neighborhood or school.
