Staff with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District work with members of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to document the birds’ nesting habits in 150 boxes, including 26 on USACE-managed grounds. Park rangers promote public safety and compliance with federal regulations, while conducting wildlife habitat enhancements. They also participate in public outreach to inform and educate people about USACE programs, projects and activities. (U.S. Army photo)
