This video explores and explains what habitat corridors are, and identifies current and potential corridors in Rice County. The use of maps, artwork and literature are shown to understand pre-settlement landscape and habitat. One model used to show the change in the land over time is computer aided mapping using GIS data. Concerns about habitat corridors are grouped into two categories: fragmentation of the land and economics. These concerns are explained with simple ecological actions citizens can take in their own yard, their neighborhood and across the county to preserve, protect and restore land.
