The Florida Ecological Greenways Network (FEGN) is a statewide database that identifies and prioritizes a functionally connected statewide ecological network of public and private conservation lands. The FEGN guides the Florida Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) ecological greenway conservation efforts, and promotes public awareness of the need for and benefits of a statewide ecological greenways network. It is the primary data layer used to inform the Florida Forever, Rural and Family Lands Protection Program and other state, federal, and regional land acquisition programs regarding the most important ecological corridors and intact landscapes across the state for protection of Florida’s native wildlife, ecosystem services, and ecological resiliency. It is also the key layer providing the science foundation for the Florida Wildlife Corridor.

“The FEGN is the key layer providing the science foundation for the Florida Wildlife Corridor.”

The FEGN Map Viewer

The Florida Ecological Greenways Network (FEGN) Map Viewer provides users access to the prioritized statewide Florida Ecological Greenways Network. Together with the FEGN (2021 edition) data layer, users will find existing and proposed conservation lands, future development scenarios, political boundaries, sea level rise projections, and several reference layers. The Florida Wildlife Corridor data layer is also included.

The FEGN Dashboard

The Florida Ecological Greenway Network (FEGN) Dashboard allows users to quickly see statistics on protected and unprotected FEGN lands and priority areas. Users can also filter statistics by county and state legislative districts.

The FEGN database is created and maintained by Center for Landscape Conservation Planning staff, and Tom Hoctor, Center Director, has led the creation, revision, and implementation of the FEGN since its inception in 1995 including policy work to support protection of the FEGN with multiple state, federal, regional, and NGO partners. Key project partners include the Florida Natural Areas Inventory, Florida Conservation Group, and Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation, advisory group members who provided technical assistance, and state agencies and foundations who provided technical assistance and funding.

One of the goals of the state greenways plan is to update the FEGN base boundary and priorities approximately every five years or so. The most recent update to the FEGN was completed in 2021, and additional updates are underway.

Primary goals of the update are:

Revise priority areas important for biodiversity conservation based on new or updated data.
Expand consideration of ecosystem services.
Incorporate additional ecological connectivity models.
Address potential sea level rise impacts on FEGN priorities.
Ensure functional ecological connectivity to other states.
Conduct boundary edits and data updates throughout the state.
