The Okaloosa darter, whose habitat is almost exclusively on the Eglin ranges, became the first-ever fish on DoD lands to be reclassified on the endangered species list. It remains in the “threatened” status, but due to major erosion control efforts by 96th Civil Engineer Group’s Natural Resources Management Section and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service the population has tripled since 1995, bringing the species back from the brink of extinction.

Arbor Day

Jan. 21st is Arbor Day in Florida and Louisiana. Since December, the Eglin Natural Resources Management Division, known as Jackson Guard, has been recruiting volunteers to help plant more than 1,600 longleaf pine trees throughout Eglin's reservation. Members of the 823rd Red Horse Squadron volunteered recently over a three-day period and planted more than 200 trees in inactive borrow pits, which are areas where the clay has been mined out for road construction. The sites are prone to erosion and planting the trees will help control that. "This is the last step in reclaiming land by bringing it back to its natural forested state," said Patricia Williams, a Jackson Guard soil conservation technician. "This is one of the programs that actually fixes the negative impacts from another program that is necessary for the Eglin mission." (Courtesy photo)
