With great losses in the Nation's ecosystem function and structure, collaborative efforts that leverage resources are essential for restoring the environment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, through its various environmental programs is capable of offering its water resources planning, design, and construction expertise to implement environmental projects that sustain biodiversity and ecosystem integrity. Through partnering, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ecosystem projects have protected and restored approximately 165,000 acres of various types of habitat and over 50 miles of stream in the U.S. The purpose of this paper is to inform other Federal agencies, non-Federal entities, and non-profit organizations of the opportunities to work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on studies and projects that support ecosystem restoration.
