Come learn about the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's geographic information system (GIS) approach to mapping endangered and threatened wildlife habitat throughout New Jersey.

The Landscape Project is used in many state planning efforts and is referenced in a number of state regulations. It is also widely used in local environmental resource inventories throughout the state.

Two upcoming Landscape Project training and information sessions will be hosted by:

The Richard Stockton College of NJ, Pomona, NJ, on Friday, October 29, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

NJ Audubon Society's Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary, Bernardsville, NJ on Thursday, November 4, 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Participants will learn how the Landscape Project was developed and have an opportunity to use GIS "hands-on" to access habitat maps for threatened and endangered wildlife species. Seating is limited so please register as soon as possible.

To register, please e-mail: patrick.woerner@dep.state.nj.us
