About the Data

WMI has developed and maintains an online database which is a repository for certain habitat management data regarding species that inhabit young forest and shrubland habitats. Some of this data is tied to landowner information that legally cannot be shown to individuals who have not signed a non-disclosure agreement. As a general user you can still access data that does not fall into this category. If you need to access this data you can contact the site administrator.
