Technical Abstract: This article describes the watershed storybook, which is an on-line map resource to help watershed stakeholders understand their watershed and opportunities to use conservation practices to improve local soil and water resources. Several examples are given and readers are encouraged to explore the process of establishing a storybook for their local watershed. A key example described is a watershed storybook for the South Fork Iowa River, available at http://arcg.is/4Lfj8, which provides an overview of conservation practice placement opportunities developed using the Agricultural Conservation Planning Framework, an ArcGIS (R) toolbox.
