What You'll Learn about The Forest Water Relationship and why it's Important

You’ll learn about where our drinking water comes from and how forests help to keep it pure. Trees play a crucial role in naturally occurring freshwater. When we remove forests surrounding freshwater, flowing water is allowed to carry sediment and pollutants into that water source. But the opposite is true as well! If we replant forests near freshwater sources, the trees will help to purify the water. Everyone needs clean water, so it’s great to learn about where it comes from and what role forests play in it!
