Natural Resources Branch
The Natural Resources Management Branch (NRMB) actively manages the installation’s natural resources with an
ecosystem based approach to ensure sustainability and that the Installation can meet its mission needs now and
into the future. This management style and related goals are achieved by NRMB personnel through field inventory
and monitoring, scientific research and adaptive management. Some familiar management activities and tools
include prescribed fire, timber harvest/thinning and reforestation, invasive species control, threatened and
endangered species surveys, and hunting and fishing game management.
Due to historical and present land uses and the Installation’s location along the Fall Line, plant and animal
diversity remains high. There are 66 animal and plant species known to occur on the installation which are State
and/or Federally Threatened, Endangered, or Species of Concern; including the red-cockaded woodpecker
(RCW) a federally endangered species. NRMB staff regularly coordinates with range and training personnel, as
well as with units on the installation, to maintain natural resources and ensure environmental compliance. All
training events or proposed projects on the installation with the potential to impact Natural Resources must first be
approved though submission of the installation 144R (FB-144R) form. FB144R requests are reviewed by NRMB.
