Watershed Element Data
This is a listing of all known occurrences of threatened, endangered, and special concern species and high quality natural communities occurring within a watershed. The species and community information is derived from the MNFI database. The watersheds are based on the 14 digit Hydraulic Unit Codes (HUC).
The listing is based on the polygon representation of the occurrences. Consequently any single occurrence may span watershed boundaries and be listed in more than one watershed. This list is based on known and verified sightings of threatened, endangered, and special concern species and represents the most complete data set available. It should not be considered a comprehensive listing of every potential species found within a watershed. Because of the inherent difficulties in surveying for threatened, endangered, and special concern species and inconsistent of inventory effort across the State species may be present in a watershed and not appear on this list.
