"Mississippi Headwaters communities answering the call to protect and improve:
Our waters, forests, economy, and future."
Good watershed management, particularly the ability to demonstrate progress and success, relies on setting outcomes that can be measured.
The water in a watershed is all connected and every lake sits at the heart of its own watershed.
Did you know the quality of our water is directly connected to the size of our forests?
Farming operations help societies grow and flourish, and represent the connection between communities
and their food.
Every time it rains, thousands of gallons of water plunge to the ground and must go somewhere.
Environmentally sensitive resources have ecologically or culturally important habitats that are easily threatened.
Individual septic systems are numerous within the Watershed and have the potential for broad and significant impacts on our ground and surface waters.
The connectivity of waterways is vital to the health of habitats and species in those systems.
Every single person in the Watershed uses wells to get drinking water.
Addressing any large-scale habitat stressor like invasive species takes the work of many agencies, organizations, and people.
