The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced today it will partner with communities, corporations and nonprofits to help restore the natural environment and boost opportunities for residents in six cities to connect with nature through the National Wildlife Refuge System’s Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnerships. More than $1.7 million will be directed to community-led habitat restoration projects and engage thousands of volunteers in the efforts.
Thanks to the Land and Water Conservation Fund, the Fish and Wildlife Service was able to add more than 190 acres of wildlife habitat to Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in upstate New York.
At the Fish and Wildlife Service, we know the world needs dedicated women scientists, so we strive to show future women scientists some of our real employees who can inspire them to follow their dreams. Taking a cue from toymaker LEGO, which recently introduced a Research Institute set featuring female scientists, folks in our Midwest Region dug out their LEGOs and created their own set.
