|Throughout the nation, citizens in communities large and small are working together to restore watersheds. These restoration efforts focus actions that result in significant improvements to water quality, upland and riparian vegetation, wetlands, and fish and wildlife habitats. One component of the effort is this Interactive Watersheds web site project.
Using immersive and interactive 360 degree panorama Virtual Tours and on-line Community Centers, individual watershed partnership web sites provide organizations and individuals a place to share restoration techniques and contributions to ecosystem recovery. These web sites also create an open communication process where citizens can become engaged in real time interaction with the restoration work.
The ultimate goal of this project is to create community-based watershed web sites that are supported and maintained by local watershed participants.
