Pennsylvania "Conservation Explorer" tool

In March 2016, the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program replaced the Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) Environmental Review tool with the new Pennsylvania Conservation Explorer. This new tool is a "one stop shop" for conservation planning and PNDI Environmental Review. The Explorer provides conservation information on biological diversity, protected lands, streams and other natural resources for planning purposes and also allows users to screen a project area for potential impacts to threatened, endangered, and special concern species. As a reminder, a PNDI receipt is needed to apply for most permits and approvals under the Chapter 102 and 105 programs. In order to obtain an online search receipt, the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program charges a convenience fee of $40.00 per project using Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card. Government agencies and Municipalities are exempt from this convenience fee.

To conduct a PNDI search online, go to the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program site and follow the Quick Links for CONSERVATION EXPLORER.

  • In addition, users may submit for a fee free manual review (For sites of any size, review free of cost- see instructions): PNDI Manual Submission Form (PDF), revised February 2016. A manual review may take 4 to 8 weeks or longer for results.
