Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership

 The Chowan River Basin

The Chowan river basin is one of 6 major watersheds that drain into the Albemarle-Pamlico estuary.  In partnership with the N.C. Office of Environmental Education, we provide here a copy of their Chowan river basin brochure (for a downloadable .pdf, click here).  Teachers may order free copies of these booklets for classroom use.  In addition to other programs and offerings for educators, APNEP has referenced relevant standards in the N.C. Standard Course of Study and the Virginia Standards of Learning here.

Like the Roanoke and Pasquotank river basins, the Chowan river basin extends between North Carolina and Virginia.  While the materials below focus primarily on North Carolina, the Virginia portion of the basin contains many interesting features as well.  A few examples include the Blackwater riverfront in Franklin, Nottoway Falls in Lunenburg County, and Assamoosick Swamp.  See our maps page for an overview of this area.
