Rolling Plains Watershed is a region that drains into its specific river. Watershed People can effect surface water by pollution, littering and putting wastes into the water.

On average the sun shines about 12 hours a day. Climate Vegetation in the Rolling Plains consists of black willow, plains cottonwood, honey mequite, salt cedars and willows. Also white tail deer, feral hogs, rio grande turkeys, and watermoccasins are common in this region. Peregrine falcons are also seen in this region.
