MassWildlife and The Nature Conservancy are pleased to announce that BioMap Town Reports are now available! The Town Reports allow quick and easy access to the most relevant information for each municipality to support planning and grant proposals. Actions at the local level play a critical role in advancing the strategic protection and stewardship of the lands and waters that are most important for biodiversity conservation.

Users can visit the BioMap Town Reports webpage to explore and print the reports. The reports provide an overview of BioMap, a detailed summary of BioMap’s biodiversity components within each municipality, and a link to the map. The reports can also be accessed from the BioMap website which offers additional resources including StoryMaps and Fact Sheets.

BioMap is an online tool that identifies critical lands and waterways throughout the Commonwealth in need of conservation. An updated and expanded version of BioMap was released in late 2022. The creation of Town Reports marks the latest feature improvement designed to help conservation partners protect and conserve biodiversity in Massachusetts.
