Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, received the 2019 Secretary of Defense Environmental Awards Natural Resources Conservation, Large Installation Award. Eglin AFB spans more than 460,000 acres of land and 120,000 square miles of water test ranges and contains 34 distinct ecosystems that are home to more than 100 rare or endangered plants and animals. Effective management of natural resources directly supports the Eglin AFB mission by alleviating or eliminating regulatory restrictions that would otherwise impede the current military training mission or hinder our flexibility to meet future mission changes.
