During this workshop, we will briefly learn about “non-point” water pollution and will be using free web mapping tools, WikiWatershed Toolkit, to explore how different land uses impact water quality and quantity in a watershed. We will finish the workshop by learning about Low Impact Development (LID) and using WikiWatershed to explore how giving your school a “LID makeover”  can impact water quality and quantity in your school’s watershed.
