Camano Island

Camano Island is a unique and beautiful place. Like many other islands in the Puget Sound, water quality and quantity can be adversely affected by expanding populations - of both people and livestock.

If you would like assistance, and you live on Camano, these District staff people can assist you:

For farm and rural living issues, call the office at 425-335-5634.

For habitat restoration, CREP, and wetland/stream issues, call Ryan Williams at 425-335-5634, ext 116.

Mapping

Map of Marine Resources in Island County
There is a now a web-based interactive map of marine resources for  Island County!
 

Location: (http://www.cob.org/soundiq/website/index.html).

You  can view intertidal & subtidal habitats, shore types, marine animal distributions, & much more with the click of a mouse. You can zoom in or out, or measure distances & areas by single-clicking on the toolbar above the map.
 
Detailed information about a location can be obtained  by drawing a rectangle (use "Select Extent" tool) or a polygon ("Select Polygon" tool) around the area of interest  - a Beach Report opens with a list of Points of Interest.  
Sources of data associated with each Point of Interest, such as MRC research reports or WSU Extension’s "Getting to the Water's Edge", can be accessed by clicking on the link. This is the initial phase of the website, with updates & more data to be added in the coming year.
 
The website is sponsored by the Island County Marine Resources Committee & the Northwest Straits 
Commission, with  substantial assistance by Island County's Planning, Public Works, & Health departments, Island County's Shoreline Master Plan update, & Island County WSU Extension.
