Open Space Valuation for Central Puget Sound

This report provides the results of the first ever open space valuation of Western Washington’s Central Puget Sound region including King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. Ten open space services, comparable with ecosystem services, are valued for each of 15 land cover types. These services are shown to represent a substantial and critical component of the regional economy, contributing $11.4 to $25.2 billion per year.
