Hennepin County Launches Natural Resources Interactive Map

Interested in how a development project may impact a wetland, prairie or floodplain? Wondering if there are important natural resources on your property?  Landowners and local governments can now access Hennepin County’s natural resources information through the Natural Resources Interactive Map. In this map, every acre in the county is classified in terms of land cover and includes detailed information on vegetative cover, natural resource corridors, soils, wetlands, floodplains, geology, topography and the ecological significance of an area.

Landowners are encouraged to use the interactive map to learn more about their property, and local governments should find the map helpful in making everyday land use decisions and in long-term planning efforts.
