Did you know that Canada is home to 20 percent of the world’s surface freshwater? That’s a huge global responsibility for Canada!
What is a watershed?
Watersheds are the areas of land that drain rain water or snow into our streams, lakes and wetlands. As the water travels through grasslands and forests they act as nature’s filters, helping to keep erosion and pollution from flowing into our water supply.
These are our sources for clean drinking water. They water our crops, power our cities, provide habitat for plants and animals, and are the places we seek out for recreation.
Yet our watersheds face threats. Pollution runoff and erosion can diminish the health of a watershed, and affect the quality of our water.
That’s why NCC’s work protecting watersheds is so important, and that’s why we need your help.
You can be a part of protecting the lands that provide clean water for our cities and homes for our wildlife species by making a gift to NCC today!
Thank you so much for your support.
