Wetlands and Adjacent Upland Habitat in the Indian River ValleyWetlands and Adjacent Upland Habitat in the Indian River Valley (14 maps 24x36)  49,982 KB
The principal objective of the Indian River wetland mapping is to delineate, classify and describe existing wetland areas (and adjacent upland habitat) within the Indian River valley and its major tributaries. The initial mapping study area focused on the main stem of the upper Indian River valley, but was doubled in area early in late 2016 to include more tributary valleys and the lower Indian River valley. The expanded mapping area will require field check during the summer of 2017.
