GIS Critical Habitat and Shoreland Assessment Mapping and Planning Project

The Shoreland GIS project purpose is to identify and map, using GIS technology, Tomahawk Lake’s critical habitat features, areas of concentrated use, and to conduct a shoreland inventory on an individual parcel basis to show the relationship of critical habitat area to shoreland land management practices.

The project assumption is that knowledge of Tomahawk Lake’s valuable ecological features will motivate shoreland owners to maintain or initiate practices that conserve or restore native shoreland vegetation and minimize erosion and surface water runoff. Plan date: 8/2020
