The Roanoke River Basin
The Roanoke 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 Roanoke 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 Chowan and Pasquotank river basins, the Roanoke river basin extends between North Carolina and Virginia. However, APNEP's program area in this watershed is currently limited to North Carolina's lower Roanoke region, downstream of the Roanoke Rapids dam.
