Beginning with Habitat


 
 

Introduction to Beginning with Habitat Maps

The 3 primary maps--Water Resources & Riparian Habitats, High Value Plant & Animal Habitats, and Undeveloped Habitat Blocks & Habitat Connections--form the core of the Beginning with Habitat information.  Supplemental information (functional characterization of wetlands, habitat for USFWS "priority trust species", and a regional perspective) are provided on additional maps.  The information in these maps is the best available, but does not represent a comprehensive inventory of every town or all important habitat areas. The agencies and organizations that provide this information gather new data continuously, but Beginning with Habitat also relies on local knowledge to help fill information gaps and provide supplemental data.
