Northern Research Station
May Feature - Water
About 18 percent of the nation’s surface water supplies in the lower 48 states originate on National Forest System land, making the Forest Service the largest single source of water in the United States. From Midwest prairies to northern forest wetlands to New England trout streams, the Northern Research Station seeks to help managers and landowners understand and protect the water resources we all depend on. During May, we highlight a scientist, research, and a partnership that are helping ensure that clean, abundant water and healthy, resilient landscapes persist for future generations.
Our new podcast brings you stories, interviews, and special in-depth anthologies of the science that's examining and explaining how forests affect our lives, and how we affect our forests.
