No matter where in the world we live – We all live in a watershed.

Everyone lives in a watershed.  People who live in dry desert areas, live in watersheds.  People who live in the Arctic live in watersheds. 

Every watershed has similarities and every watershed is different.  Deserts are part of watersheds.  Watersheds can include hills, lowlands, mountains, cities, farms, wetlands, deserts, wooded areas, and many other areas.
