Habitat Management Program

Does your Project require a Habitat Monitoring Plan (HMP)? Check out the two example HMPs below: one for large Project Areas, such as an entire Forest or Field Office, and another for smaller, more discrete Project Areas. Also included below are example maps that correspond to each HMP. These examples can  guide Applicants during HMP development.

Example HMP for Forest Wide Project Area
