The Natural Heritage Program Map Viewer provides information on significant natural heritage areas and managed areas occurring within a 1- to 5-mile radius of a user-selected location. Below are brief notes on use of the map viewer. For more information on use of the map viewer or for an explanation of the values returned by the search, see the "Help and Definitions" link above.
Use of North Carolina Natural Heritage Program data should not be substituted for actual field surveys, particularly if the project area contains suitable habitat for rare species. If a database search lists no records for a project area, it does not necessarily mean that they are not present. The area may not have been surveyed by biologists, or the data may not have been reported to NC Natural Heritage Program.
