Wetlands Protection is an important part of preserving water quality and habitat for certain species. Use the Layer Control to see the locations of different types of wetland habitat.
Lacustrine: Wetlands associated with lakes
Riverine: Wetlands associated with rivers.
Palustrine: marsh or swamp lands.
Marine: Wetlands associated with ocean or open marine waters
Estuarine: Tidally-influenced semi-enclosed wetland habitat, often where fresh and saltwater meet. Notice how all Puget Sound is considered an estuary.
