The Rose Creek Watershed encompasses a fairly small  2 1/2 square miles in Little Rock, but provides big possibilities for the surrounding communities. Our goal is to develop a consolidated stewardship effort of informed stakeholders in the watershed with a common interest in implementing strategies to preserve, protect and promote Rose Creek

What is a watershed & why are they important?
What can I do to help take care of my watershed?

A watershed is the area of land that water flows across or under on its way to a stream, creek, river or lake. Watersheds are the source of all the water we use. Water enters the watershed as rain or other precipitation and then soaks into the ground to replenish aquifers and gathers in ponds and creeks that feed larger streams and rivers. A healthy watershed is like a sponge, absorbing, storing, and slowly releasing water.

Watersheds are simply areas of land, therefore you take care of your watershed by being a good steward of the land resources. You can also participate in cleanup days and other Rose Creek Watershed events by visiting our Facebook page!
