A project on the Oregon Coast that aimed to reduce flooding and improve habitat for fish and wildlife included challenging nighttime work that had to be done at the lowest tides. Tackling this job were heavy equipment operators of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, or as they are known throughout the agency, the backbone of the Service. They turn habitat conservation dreams into reality.
Along with partners, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been working at California’s Clear Creek for decades. The project has paid off, and the area now attracts “families utilizing the area, swimming with kids, fishing, mountain biking, hiking with dogs.”
