The Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project of Southeast New England (Stew-MAP SNE) dashboard provides stewardship organizations, municipalities, researchers, and the general public with information about environmental groups that work in the Southeast New England Program region, where they work (their turf) and their knowledge and funding networks in the region.  The STEW-MAP SNE supports a broader understanding of the existing environmental stewardship networks and supports the capacity building of the groups who take care of the environment. The methodology was developed by the USDA Forest Service and brought to the Southeast New England Program (SNEP) Region by SNEP Network Partner, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and funded by the SNEP Network.
