Habitat Harmony recognized the need to coordinate the massive amount of information in the many plans for wildlife in the Flagstaff area. Habitat Harmony partnered with AZ Game & Fish to employ NAU graduate student to write the Wildlife Reference Guide to coordinate the information on wildlife and habitat in nine area plans. At the request of a Flagstaff City Council member, a Summary of the Wildlife Reference Guidewas written to provide the key planning information in a more user-friendly format.
