Abstract : The report estimates the value of wetland amenities in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area using the hedonic property pricing approach. Detailed residential housing and wetland data are used to relate the sales price of a residential property to the structural characteristics of the property, neighborhood attributes in which the property is located, and amenity values of wetlands and other environmental characteristics. In addition to estimating the hedonic price functions, second-stage regression analysis is used to estimate the willingness-to-pay function for wetland size.
