Redefining Geography

Posted on January 15, 2014 by Borderlands Restoration in Uncategorized
John Wesley Powell defined a watershed as, “that area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water course and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.”
Borderlands works to restore watersheds by returning natural processes, restoring diversity and stability at the base of the food chain, and collaborating with the community.
What if we redefined our geographical boundaries based on our current sense of place, whether that be culture, populations, or watersheds? Would we become a tighter community, as Powell suggested? An article from High Country News, investigates this question of redefining our geography. Click on the map to visit the article.
