Full-Time Restoration Partnerships Coordinator
The Division’s Regional Restoration Partnership Program assists in this state-wide effort through the establishment of DER Partnerships with watershed groups and other regional organizations. These partnerships increase regional and local capacity to advance locally identified ecological restoration and climate resiliency priorities which are shared by DER and its selected Regional Partners. With funding and support from DER, Regional Partners provide technical and financial assistance to help municipalities, NGOs, and others develop and implement high-value restoration and protection actions that target DER’s priority ecological stressors, including habitat degradation, streamflow stress, impaired water quality, and climate change impacts.
