This map displays the locations of community and statewide organizations that are active in protecting water quality and quantity within the state's eight basins. A basin is an extent of land where water from rain or snow melt drains downhill into a body of water, such as a river, lake, reservoir, estuary, wetland, sea or ocean. You can click on the different color areas to identify the eight river basins in our state, which are further divided into sub-basins.
Each blue pin on the map represents a single organization. Select a pin to view contact information so that you may inquire about current volunteer opportunities and link to available websites.
If you would like to add your organization to this map, please see the section below on "editing, removing or adding data".
At the top of the toolbar select "Add Data". This will take you to a new application that enables the addition, editing and removal of pins and their associated data.
Two functions can be performed in the edit window including modifying existing records and removal of data from the application.
The "Details" field is for mailing or physical address (if applicable).
"Watershed Type" refers to the group's focus such as water quality protection, trail maintenance, farmland preservation, etc.
"Location" is the extent of working area the group operates within – county, city, region, state, watershed, etc.
"Region" is which of the eight main river basins the group works within
New organizations can be added by selecting the "add" link for any of the respective basins.
Once this initial record is created additional information such as contact name, phone, email and web site can be added by using the “edit” steps previously discussed.
Data for each river basin can be download separately. Next to each basin name is a "kml" link. By selecting this link a kml file will be downloaded and can be viewed in Google Earth.
