Corps Foundation mission:
The Corps of Engineers Natural Resources Education Foundation is a non-profit advocacy organization, dedicated to the stewardship of the environmental, cultural, educational and outdoor recreational resources associated with the Natural Resources Management mission of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Our goals are:
- to provide additional financial and volunteer support for projects which will enhance the Corps Natural Resources Management mission;
- to assist local and regional Corps of Engineers advocacy groups in raising funds for enhancement projects which the CNREF Board finds in line with this Mission Statement.
- to facilitate partnerships between the public and private sectors which strategically invest in public education and the conservation and sustainable use of natural and cultural resources managed by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers;
- to educate decision-makers and the public about the importance of the Corps stewardship mission in conserving natural and cultural resources and providing public recreation opportunities which contribute to the quality of American life.
