Project Spotlights to feature EEP's work statewide
December 11, 2012 11:12 AM
Over the past 15 years, the Ecosystem Enhancement Program (and its predecessors at the N.C. Wetlands Restoration Program) initiated nearly 600 projects statewide that range from stream, wetland and buffer restoration to preservation to local watershed planning. All of the initiatives are designed to promote EEP's mission: to restore and protect North Carolina's natural resources for future generations while supporting responsible economic development.
Today marks the launch of EEP Project Spotlight, an online and interactive web feature that over time will highlight the bulk of EEP initiatives on a twice-weekly basis. Each Spotlight will feature a brief synopsis of the project; a listing of the partners who helped bring them to fruition; links to further information; photos and other visual aids; and an explanation of the purpose of each type of initiative carried out by EEP and its collaborators.
The Spotlights may be viewed online or printed (printing works best at 11x14 inches or larger). Separate pages will feature a searchable archive of previous postings and a listing of the most recent postings in each category. Another link will take visitors to EEP's online interactive map with a search engine that will show the location and provide further background information on each project.
EEP is proud of its accomplishments in providing efficient, cost-effective compensatory mitigation for the public and private sectors. Please bookmark the Project Spotlight page for an inside look each Tuesday and Thursday at this valuable work for North Carolina's environment and its economy.
