Washington Counties/ Metropolitan Areas Project/Exercise

Under Construction!

For a number of exercises in this class, you are asked to select one of Puget Sound's metropolitan areas and one of the counties within this metropolitan area (your "region"). In addition, your substantive area of specialization (your "field") should have some relationship to this region. The relevant counties and metropolitan areas are listed below (at the bottom of this page). You will find useful general and specific resources elsewhere on this page.
