Watershed Atlas
Mystery #1

This old house was once a beautiful home for a family. That was when this valley was filled with people who farmed. They grew cotton, soybeans, and other crops. But now the farmers are gone, and the houses and the land are left to nature. Our school has 150 students K-12, but our district is about 40 miles by 30 miles. Families still grow gardens to have vegetables for their own use. And some of the people here work in the log woods. Most of the few people that continue to live in this valley must travel up to 50 miles to work in the city.

A map of our watershed shows the elevation of the mountains of our valley. It crosses three counties in our state.Eventually this water will drain into the Mississippi River.
