About the Bohemia River
The Bohemia River watershed is 35,369 acres. Great Bohemia Creek originates near Middletown, Delaware and Little Bohemia Creek near Warwick, Maryland. Together they form the Bohemia River, which in turn merges with the Elk River before flowing into the Chesapeake Bay.
Everyone has an impact on their watershed; there are some easy steps you can take to make your impact as positive as can be.
