Your first step in locating information on rare plant species or high-quality ecosystems in Washington should be to consult the Reference Desk section of our website. If you are looking for site-specific information, we have instituted a new self-service procedure that allows you to immediately check online to see if there are features in a specific towhship, range, and section (TRS). If the section of interest occurs on that list, you should submit a request for a Project Area Report as outlined in the self-service procedure. If the information you are seeking is not available via these procedures, please use the contact listed in the right hand column.
