This activity investigates the different land uses over time across your local catchment. OUTCOMES are for children to: understand the natural and urban water cycle; learn about the different land uses for water in your local area; understand the competing pressures for water security in a catchment; appreciate that what happens on land can impact our rivers and oceans; and recognise strategies to help water sustainability locally.
