This is a map of the EPA Landcover/Landuse in the KRIS East Marin-Sonoma project area, based on a 1992 Landsat TM satellite image. The southern portion of the project area is heavily urbanized (shown in hot pink). Flat areas in the northern portion are mostly agriculture (orange). Patches of coniferous forest (blue) and mixed forest (dark green) dominate the slopes above Sonoma Creek and also the southern end of the project area.
