Description

Occasional Papers in Geography Publication No. 6

This guide begins at the summit of Mount Rainier and, like a drop of water, descends toward the sea. It provides information about geological, hydrological, geographical, biological and historical aspects of the Nisqually watershed. It describes the natural resources in the area and identifies how the use of those resources affects water resources and quantity.

In the course of this trip, you will be able to follow the Nisqually River along its journey from the summit of Mount Rainier to the Puget Sound and learn about the changes that have occurred within this 720-square-mile-watershed over the past 200 years, the problems that have arisen and the efforts that are being taken to protect this valuable and scenic area.
