Big Cypress Nat’l Preserve …
Is often described as a “watershed.”
Actually, it has four major watersheds in it. And they not only overlap with each other, they depend (in the past, present and future) on upstream flows. We gravitate to simple descriptions, and that’s probably how the simplistic “self-contained watershed” moniker took hold. But a little bit of complexity is not only more accurate, it puts us on a better stewardship path — and it’s more interesting, too.
To be terrific, be specific. Details matter.
