Wetlands in your Region

Storyboard Text

  • Today, my school and I visited the Upper White Watershed. It is located on the White River in central Indiana and is a non-tidal wetland. As it reaches Ohio, it heads west, and as you continue, you see the differing landscape. The West Fork alone is 356 miles long. The precipitation is heavy and the watershed gets 42 inches on average. We have to take good care of it because it is important to people and animals. Let's take a look.
