The Martha's Vineyard Habitat Network (VHN) is up and running and working with a diverse array of landowners who want to improve their habitats for a variety of wildlife.
Landowners enrolled in the program know how their own backyards can improve habitat connections across the Vineyard for species as diverse as song sparrows, turtles, moths and butterflies and other insects.
