“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 Ch. 102 and 105 programs. In order to obtain an online search receipt, the Pennsylvania Natural
Heritage Program now 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: www.naturalheritage.state.pa.us 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, revised 2/2016. A manual review may take 4-8 weeks or longer for results.
