Description
Abstract
                            Northwest Ecological Services, LLC (NES) was contracted in June 2003 to develop a comprehensive GIS database that identifies wetland locations and other environmentally sensitive features within specified areas being considered for future urban development. The geographic scope of the project included land in and adjacent to Bellingham's Urban Growth Areas as specified by City planning staff. 
                          
Purpose
                            The objective of the project was to provide reconnaissance level data, in a form supported by GIS, of wetlands, wetland complexes, streams and drainages that could be used for planning purposes.  To accomplish this task, NES reviewed existing information provided by the City as well as other available material.  Reconnaissance-level field investigation was performed on all properties, except when access was refused by the property owner. Wetlands and other significant features were observed and noted on aerial base maps and data was collected on wetland class, hydrology, vegetation, drainage and wildlife associations. The wetland boundaries indicated on the maps are approximate and intended only to provide an indication of the presence of wetlands.

Attribute Definition
Each wetland was assigned a number based upon its location. The number represents the Township/Range/Section - followed by a numerical number. The wetland number was assigned arbitrarily. For example, Wetland T38R2ES2-1 is located in Township 38 North, Range 2E, Section 2 and was assigned the number 1. When more than one sample point was taken in the same wetland, the wetland number is followed by a letter and number (i.e.: A1, A2). This extension correlates to the Wetland ID number in the Access database and identifies where the sample was taken within the wetland

Attribute LabelCOWARDIN_CLASS_1
Attribute Definition
The Cowardin system was developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1979 to classify wetlands and deepwater habitats (Cowardin, et al., 1979). The system provides a way to consistently describe ecological systems with uniform concepts and terms. Classification is hierarchical, similar to taxonomic classifications used to identify plants and animals
