Backyard Wildlife Corridors Program

This program is born from the need to identify and expand available habitat spaces in Goshen and beyond. When natural areas are removed to create farms, homes, and commercial development, wildlife still needs suitable habitats to live and migrate.

The Backyard Wildlife Corridors program aims to locate and grow current local wildlife habitat spaces that link to become sustainable wildlife corridors. The Goshen Environmental Resilience Department encourages residents to register their wildlife habitat space for the mapping project.

The resulting map will be available to everyone. There will be opportunities to select certain wildlife species, such as Monarch caterpillars, which eat milkweeds exclusively, and see their corresponding habitat.   No personal identifiers will be included. Please participate by adding your habitat space to the database. Mapping allows you and others to see where critical habitat corridors are.

Do you have a backyard habitat?

Register your habitat space to help us identify wildlife corridors that go through the city.
