Bioregional Mapping Workshop

Place Based & Watershed Stewards

Just where is “here”? Bioregions are the way the world divides up naturally — defined by climate, by watershed, by mountains, by travel routes. But it’s not the way we’re used to looking at the world, and identifying the place we live.
