The R. W. Morse Company was formed in 1978 by Bob Morse. The Company's main areas of focus are:

· Write, Publish and Market Books. Bob and Christina’s life-long interest in birds and bird watching has led the company to write and publish books about birds. After writing A Birder’s Guide to Coastal Washington, the company developed a series of compact, regional guides for beginning and avid bird watchers. Starting with Birds of the Puget Sound Region which became the best selling bird book in the Western US for three successive years other regional guides were developed. Currently six regional, photographic guides are available at independent bookstores and this website.

· Consulting for companies entering the Washington State new recreational marijuana industry. Our company is preparing Business Plans for companies applying for licenses under I-502 and companies providing goods and services to the emerging cannabis industry. If you need to develop a Business Plan and are looking for professional assistance at a reasonable cost, please contact Bob Morse at or 360-943-8600. All work is performed on a strictly confidential basis.
