A watershed is a home base.

Our town lies in the Sebasticook River Watershed. From where I live on the top of the Barker Road you can follow the small nameless streams northwest off  the ridge to Carlton Bog out Carlton Stream to Unity Pond/Lake Winnecook out Twenty Five Mile Stream to the Sebasticook River.

Within each watershed are layers of time, of story, of place; configurations of wetlands, manmade and ancient, beavers dams and hydro dams, ponds and streams, pools and rivers,run off and farmland irrigation, pumps, dams, and species in abundance, species endangered or scarce, graveyards, skeletons of mills , farmsteads, and bridges,  native plants and invasive ones, lilacs and cat tails, purple loosestrife and nasty milfoil.
