Restoring America’s Natural Infrastructure
Ecosystem Restoration is a significant down payment in protecting our shared natural heritage. In collaboration with states, Tribes, local communities and federal agencies, we are using Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to advance habitat restoration, conduct invasive species control and conserve at-risk species. These activities benefit several significant ecosystems and recreational sites.
