Lehigh Valley Watershed
Students investigate our local watershed and how it has been used in the past and present, including its role in settlement patterns. Students study, compare, and contrast the different types of landforms that helped create our watershed. The watershed is composed of the watershed system and subsystems, including: housing and business districts, roadways, transportation venues, schools, recreational parks, agencies and legal authorities. Students will investigate and gain an understanding and awareness of how these subsystems affect the local watershed’s health and sustainability.
