Want to learn more about the Poultney/Mettowee River Watershed?
Our Fall 2013 Watershed Educators have researched each sub-basin in the Lake Champlain Watershed to create a power point presentations as a resource for you. We've made each presentation available here, on our watershed pages, so that you can present it to classroom, show it at an informal talk, or use it to learn more yourself!
