Michigan Watersheds Map
What happens when you pour a bucket of water out in your yard? Which Great Lake will it end up draining to? These are the kinds of questions you can explore using the Michigan Watersheds Map.
This is a new version of the map for 2014, which features some updated content while maintaining the clear, pleasing design of the original. For example, we have simplified the way coastal watershed drainages are represented throughout the map.
Stock Status: In Stock
The poster is great as a classroom tool or looks fantastic hanging on a wall, showing some Michigan pride.

An Introduction to Michigan Watersheds for Teachers, Students and Residents
The diagrams, explanations and teaching resources in this guide are intended to complement the use of the Michigan Watersheds Map.
The guide helps illustrate and explore the following points:
• We all live in and depend on watersheds.
• Michigan's geology, climate and land use influence the flow of water through our watersheds and rivers.
• Our actions on land impact the health of our groundwater, rivers and lakes.
Poster size: 26 x 37 inches - vertical alignment, full color.
The map is based on high-resolution geographic data that was processed by our partners at the USGS Great Lakes Science Center. It shows watershed boundaries at a local level, and also at a "greater" level, demonstrating how drainages can be divided on different scales.
