The Urban Standards of Excellence were developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as guideposts to help us understand if we're engaging with the community in genuine and relevant ways, ensuring current and future generations care about and care for our shared natural resources.
It might be helpful to think of the Standards of Excellence like a "flexible recipe." It describes the dish we're trying to make, shares the main ingredients, but there's flexibility in order, quantity, cook times, and what additional ingredients might make the dish even better. We invite you to learn more about this dish we call a "Connected Conservation Constituency" and would love to work with you in its creation.
