Economic Contribution of Outdoor Recreation to Whatcom County, WA

Stretching from the North Cascades and iconic Mount Baker down through the foothills to the Salish Sea, Whatcom County, in northwestern Washington, offers plentiful outdoor recreation opportunities. This abundance of outdoor choices also provides jobs and promotes economic activity. This report identifies the economic impact of outdoor recreation through an economic contribution analysis and further illustrates the value of recreational lands in Whatcom County through an ecosystem services valuation.
