Amy Horstman has worked for USFWS in the Pacific Northwest since 2000. She works in the Service's habitat restoration programs assisting with habitat improvement project design, permitting, and implementation in the Lower Columbia River and along Oregon's northern coast. Her work is primarily with private landowners who voluntarily wish to restore habitat through the Service's Partners for Fish and Wildlife and Coastal Programs. She served the Oregon statewide coordinator for the Partners for Fish and Wildlife program from 2003 through 2009, overseeing the program's strategic planning and focus area development.
Prior to that, Amy helped provide regulatory assurances to private landowners who voluntarily restored habitat for endangered and threatened species through the Service's Safe Harbor Agreement program and developed the first Safe Harbor Agreements in Oregon. She received a Master's of Science degree in Zoology in 1995 from the Cooperative Wildlife Research Laboratory at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and has also spent time working for private, nonprofit, and state natural resource departments.To contact Amy, please call 360.604.2500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
