A watershed is an area of land that drains rainwater, snowmelt, and any other sources of water through a system of streams and rivers to a low point like a lake, bay, or sea. The Casco Bay watershed includes parts of more than 41 towns and cities, and the hundreds of Calendar Islands. While the Casco Bay watershed comprises only 3% of land in Maine, it is home to one in five Mainers. (Photo: Casco Bay Estuary Partnership)
