USDA Forest Service (Eastern Region)

The Eastern Region is rich in water. More than 10,000 lakes (with nearly half on national forests), 15,000 miles of streams, and two million acres of wetlands provide clean drinking water for communities, healthy habitat for fish and wildlife, and recreation opportunities for millions of visitors. Almost half the nation's 45 million anglers fish the waters of the 20-state Eastern Region each year. Yet, when the East was first settled, rivers were straightened and dammed, and wetlands were drained. Today the region works hard with neighbors and partners to restore these watersheds.
