Hudson Valley Natural Resource Mapper

The Hudson Valley Natural Resource Mapper is an online, interactive tool designed to help identify and understand important habitat and water resources, the connections between them, and their broader regional context. The mapper also highlights Hudson River recreation sites and other areas where residents and visitors can enjoy the region’s natural beauty. By bringing together information about natural features such as streams, wetlands, and large forests, as well as recreation amenities and existing protected lands, communities can begin to identify conservation priorities and strategies that can be incorporated into local land-use planning. This process will help ensure that future generations continue to enjoy the numerous benefits provided by the Hudson Valley’s natural systems.
