Welcome to the Watershed Resources Registry, an interactive mapping tool to characterize and prioritize natural resource management opportunities using a Watershed Approach. Areas across Maryland have been scored on a scale of one to five stars based on their potential benefits for restoration or preservation. Users can either access the interactive mapping tool or download the data directly.

Using the Watershed Resources Registry allows you to:

  • Identify candidate locations
  • Assess and compare potential projects
  • Export data and print site maps for field visits
After exploring the site or utilizing the mapping tool for watershed information, we welcome your feedback.

Training Video

The Watershed Resources Registry has put together a training video to help teach users how to use the various tools inside the mapping application. Click here to view the training video. An additional video that demonstrates the new “Add Site Visit” functionality can be viewed by clicking here.
