|A watershed (also called
catchment or drainage basin) consists of
the total land area that contributes water to a larger water system. In
this case, the celery bog wetland is part of the larger water system. A
wetland is an ecosystem in which rooted vegetation is surrounded by
standing water during part of the year.
The Cuppy-McClure watershed has an area of 386 hectacres (1.49 mi2). About 34 hectacres (0.131 mi2) of this watershed consists of the wetland. Thus, the wetlands account for about 8.8% of the area in this watershed.
