The report is a compilation of critical natural areas, both those already under protection and those lacking protection, in addition to a discussion of endangered and rare species, wetland ecosystems and other natural communities, and the geomorphology of the 10-county region. Data from the project will be recorded in the Natural Heritage Program's central inventory management system, which is used by many other agencies for environmental impact assessment, land use planning, resource management decisions, and conservation planning.
