Planning for natural resources conservation and management is a critical responsibility of state and federal agencies, NGOs, land trusts, and many private organizations. To meet land and natural-resource management goals, these organizations need knowledge on key species and habitats, including comprehensive maps of natural resources, species imperilment status and vulnerability, and areas important to wildlife connectivity.
NatureServe developed a suite of materials that planners, managers, and landowners can apply in large-scale land planning and management.
