Cook Inlet Wetlands

Literature Cited

Many wetlands in the Cook Inlet lowlands, Alaska have been classified and mapped as part of an ongoing project to better manage these valuable resources. Areas covered include the western Kenai Peninsula, the area around Seward, non-Chugach National Forest lands in the Kenai Mountains, and the most populous areas of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley.

You can view these maps in GoogleEarth by downloading a file (30 MB, .kmz format) or linking to it over the web. Click on downloads, below for more information. In the Kenai Peninsula Borough, you can view the maps along with current land ownership information at the Kenai Peninsula Borough's Geographic Information System website.
