Mapping Seattle Area Rivers and Streams

Step 1: Access these resources

Step 2: Locate and label sites, rivers and streams

Look for the list of Sites, Rivers and Streams, and Additional Sites and Streams on the left side of your Google Map.

  1. Click on each name to go to each site.
  2. Zoom out so you can see where you are on the map. Write a symbol and label on your map blank to show each location.
  3. Zoom back in so you can see what the feature looks like.
  4. Repeat for all of the Sites and Rivers and Streams. Only do the Additional Sites if you have more than enough time.
