Transcript of White Oak River Basin

White Oak River Basin By Declan Sistachs, Max Randall, and Sean Arcure Different Organisms Lots of different animals reside in the White Oak River Basin. Here are some examples. The Leatherback Sea Turtle lives in the White Oak River Basin. It is considered endangered by the state and is at risk of being extinct. Amazingly, they eat jellyfish. The West Indian Manatee also lives in the White Oak River Basin. It feeds on growing vegetation in the water. It is endangered and rare. The American Alligator takes shelter in Coastal North Carolina and some parts of the White Oak River Basin. It feeds on the various fish that live in the basin. The Short Nosed Sturgeon also lives in the White Oak River Basin. They eat aquatic larvae, snails, plants, shrimp, and crayfish. Recreational activities Maintaining the Health of the Watershed One goal for maintaining the health of the watershed is for people to limit the use of fertilizers and pesticides. This is because the runoff could lead to rivers and harm the organisms living in it. Another goal is for people to use paving alternatives that allow rainwater to soak into the ground. If they do this, it will reduce the amount of runoff carrying harmful chemicals that lead into the river basin. A third goal is to stop polluted runoff and eroded soil from getting into the water. Some shrubs can reduce the harmful chemicals in rivers, so people can help by preserving buffers of trees and shrubs along the edge of waterfront property. One recreational activity that you can do within the watershed is biking and hiking. The watershed is very big and full of neat trails and paths that are accessible to everyone. There even paths made for people in wheelchairs. Another recreational activity is paddling. The White Oak River Basin contains many creeks,streams, and ponds, all available for you to sail on. These various paddling locations range from easy to moderate. The White Oak River Basin Unique Qualities The White Oak River Basin draws it's name from the White Oak River, which is 48 miles long. Forests and wetlands cover almost half of the river basin. Some of it privately owned and some of it publicly owned. The total number of miles, including all the streams and rivers, is 320 miles. There are 6 counties within the basin. The population is 280,101.
