Let’s start the conversation: How does this government agency affect you?
The online conversation of conservation in the Northeast is rapidly expanding. It’s time we joined in! This blog will be a forum for Ecological Services to share what our program is doing to help fish and wildlife in the Northeast. You’ll hear from me–the head of our program–as well as our partners and our expert team across the 13 states we serve.
Our biologists support partners and projects with their knowledge and skills in habitat restoration, species conservation, contaminant assessment and remediation, wetlands inventory, wind energy, fish passage and project planning. Programs within ES are devoted to each of these disciplines; and you’ll see periodic highlights of them in this blog
We’re here to share our expertise and our devotion to the outdoors, and to give you a place to learn and share these experiences. This blog is also a chance to see what your federal government is up to – see what we’re working on and why. Learn which neighbors we’re partnering with. Understand the decisions we make. Comment on what we’re doing and how we can communicate betterNature needs us. Find out what we are doing to meet this need.
