The watershed

A watershed is...
A area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water course and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.

If you live, work, or recreate in the area outlined on this map, you are in the Onondaga Lake watershed. The Onondaga Lake watershed covers 285 square miles and encompasses two counties, one city, 18 towns, six villages, and the Onondaga Nation Territory.

Our Field Trip

On our field trip we went to the Honey Well visitor senator, The Salt museum, Fishing, Biking, and taking samples at Willow Bay. in my opinion the Willow Bay part of our trip was the best part of the days. Biking was also fun thought we both love riding the bikes together.
