Swannanoa Journal: The significance of local (and global) watersheds

In this edition of Warren Wilson College’s “Swannanoa Journal,” Warren Wilson College Professor Catherine Reid discusses learning that she lives in the Ross Creek watershed. What does it mean, living in a watershed? What area does it cover, where does it drain, and how do you educate students about watersheds and their significance?

(In partnership with WWC’s Environmental Leadership Center, Xpress presents The Swannanoa Journal, short audio essays on regional environmental sustainability issues, written and recorded by WWC students.)
