Habitat Maps and Reports

Hudsonia’s habitat maps and reports provide biodiversity information that is not available from other sources.  Below is a list of the maps and reports that are available.  We can provide hard copies, electronic copies on CD, or instructions for downloading of electronic copies from our website. Some of the following habitat maps may also be available as zoomed-in sections or quads. Please contact us for further information.

If you are interested in receiving any hard copies of these materials, please contact us at our office.  Material production, shipping, and handling fees will apply to hard-copy orders and CDs.  These contributions are critically important to the continuation of Hudsonia’s habitat mapping program.  If you or your organization are unable to cover the fees for these materials, we may be able to provide the information at reduced cost.

Though our electronic copies are provided free-of-charge, we suggest the following donation levels per report:

For-profit agencies: $25

Municipal agencies, NGOs, & Individuals: $15


Habitat maps and reports available from Hudsonia


The Dutchess County Habitat Mapper

The Dutchess County Habitat Mapper is a collaborative effort between Hudsonia Ltd and a group of GIS students and their instructor at Marist College.

In 2001-2020, Hudsonia created townwide maps showing significant habitats for twelve Dutchess County towns plus the City of Poughkeepsie, along with reports describing the habitats, their ecological significance, their importance to the human community, and recommendations for conservation. The habitat information is intended to inform townwide and site-specific land use planning, policy-making, land management, and siting, design, and environmental reviews of land development projects.

In 2021-2022, Don Meltz and his GIS students at Marist College published the data contained in the habitat maps to an online platform to enable easy public access. This online map is provided as a way to visualize the habitat data alongside other GIS data.

Habitat data is available for the towns of Amenia, Beekman, Clinton, Dover, East Fishkill, Hyde Park, North East, Pine Plains, Poughkeepsie (town & city), Rhinebeck, Stanford, and Washington.

The Dutchess County habitat data can be viewed in the interactive webmap, and pdfs of the habitat reports and maps for each municipality are available below. Also below are habitat reports and maps for several other Hudson Valley locations.
