Watershed Homepage

A Resource for Students and Parents to explore more together!

A watershed is an area of land where water drains from high points, at the ridges of hills and mountains, to the low points, eventually contributing to water flowing to the sea from lakes, streams and rivers. 

Our watershed, the Rathdrum Prairie/Spokane, supplies water to one of the largest and purest aquifers in the world--right under our feet! The Rathdrum Plain Aquifer is abundant but also fragile--it requires our stewardship to keep this resource supplying our water needs for the future.  

We are always adding new material so keep your eyes open!!
