New & Enhanced Projects Map

Between lake management, on-the-ground projects, and planning, there's a lot happening in our small 25 sq mi watershed. Our mapping tools strive to provide users with the most useful information and to make it easy to get to know our watershed.

Our projects can now be easily accessed and browsed by location on our new and enhanced projects map.

Similarly, our GIS site is another map that contains more technical information about our watershed itself. Topography, wetland boundaries, aerial images dating back to 1940, and tools to measure properties or water bodies. This map is useful for anyone building a raingarden on their property, attending one of our workshops, or building within our watershed.
