Recreation

Coastal Atlas - Use the Coastal Atlas to learn about Washington’s marine shorelines and the land areas near Puget Sound, the outer coast, and the estuarine portion of the Columbia River. You can view aerial photographs of marine shorelines, locate different habitat types, physical features, see changes in land cover, and much more.

BEACH program - The Washington BEACH Program is led jointly by the Washington State Departments of Ecology and Health, and consists of county and local agencies, tribal nations, and volunteers. The mission of the BEACH Program is to reduce the risk of disease for people who play in saltwater.

Clean Green Boating - Boat owners play an important role in protecting water quality while they enjoy the water and when they repair and maintain their investment.
