South Lewis County Habitat Analysis Report

Category: Habitat - Land Use Planning

Date Published: May 14, 2009

Number of Pages: 52

Author(s): John Carleton

DESCRIPTION:
To inform the South Lewis County Subarea planning process, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) were consulted to analyze habitats and ecosystem processes, respectively, across the local area. The purpose of the two agencies’ work is to provide information on natural systems that will allow the planners to accommodate growth while avoiding unintended consequences, such as loss of local biodiversity, or increased flooding. This habitat report is to be incorporated as an appendix to the watershed characterization.
