It’s also fun to understand what lives in your own backyard.
Features & Benefits
The county and watershed maps are based on NatureServe’s widely recognized data. For over 40 years, the NatureServe Network has regularly assessed and documented detailed scientific data for species and ecosystems in all 50 states, using our core methodologies and standards.
Need more than just the maps? You can have access to all the county/watershed data for at-risk species. Two versions of these data are available: a standard version that includes the at-risk species as displayed in the map viewers, or a comprehensive version that includes all available tracked species (including state rare species that may not be at-risk across their range). Both datasets include a shapefile of county/watershed boundaries along with a list of specific at-risk species for each reporting unit.
