BioFinder is a database and mapping tool for identifying Vermont's lands and waters that support important ecosystems, natural communities, habitats, and species. It features Vermont Conservation Design and was developed by the Agency of Natural Resources and partners to support stewardship and conservation. BioFinder highlights networks of forests, streams and other features that together create the heart and backbone of Vermont's landscape.
