Learn about water in your vicinity. Find out where it is located, how people use it, where rainfall flows, and what sources of pollution exist that might affect water quality. Make a map of your watershed, to get the big picture.

Investigate the needs for action. Use one of the four Action Guide checklists to explore water issues in the school, home, community, and farm.
