What is Beginning with Habitat?
Beginning with Habitat (BwH), a collaborative program of federal, state and local agencies and non-governmental organizations, is a habitat-based approach to conserving wildlife and plant habitat on a landscape scale. The goal of the program is to maintain sufficient habitat to support all native plant and animal species currently breeding in Maine. BwH compiles habitat information from multiple sources, integrates it into one package, and makes it accessible to towns, land trusts, conservation organizations and BwH is designed to help local decision makers create a vision for
their community, to design a landscape, and to develop a plan that provides habitat for all species and balances future development with conservation. To read more click here.
