Region 6 HeadquartersThe coastal counties from the Long Beach Peninsula in the south to the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the north along with the counties surrounding southern Puget Sound and Hood Canal comprise this region.

The area is rich in fish and wildlife. Unique to this region are Roosevelt elk that make their home on the Olympic Peninsula. The region also includes two major esturine environments, Grays Harbor and Willapa Bay and the most significant remaining natural prairie ecosystems, which hosts unique species of plants and animals. Bowerman Basin, an arm of Grays Harbor, is a world renown bird watching area, particulary during spring and fall shore bird migration. Ocean Shores is Washington's most unique area to watch birds; 290 species have been identified in the area--70 percent of the species that occur statewide. Fish, bald eagles, western gray squirrels, marine birds, Quilcene and Olympic oysters, and clams, including the unique geoduck clam also are found in the region.

Recreational opportunities such as fish and wildlife viewing, hiking, scuba diving, hunting, fishing, and shellfish gathering abound. The region also includes Olympic National Park and a portion of Mt. Rainier National Park, and the Hood Canal Watershed Project Center, which is a nationally recognized environmental learning and interpretive site.
