This is a map of EPA Landcover/Landuse in Calwater Planning Watersheds in the Novato and Miller Creeks sub-basin, based on a 1992 Landsat TM satellite image. The bayside pale orange areas denoted in the legend as agriculture are cattle pastures. West of the pastures is a band of residential (pink) and commercial-industrial (purple) areas. The hills above the residential areas are covered in a mix of conifers (dark blue) and hardwoods (green), and grasslands (pale yellow). Data were provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
