Join Us for an Informative Presentation on the New Aquatic SLOPES Agreement for Eastern North Carolina!

We are excited to announce a special presentation by Kathy Matthews from the US Fish and Wildlife Service's (Service) Raleigh office and Casey Haywood from the US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps). They will be discussing the new Standard Local Operating Procedures for Endangered Species (SLOPES) Agreement for Eastern NC Aquatic Species, which will be used by the Corps and the Service to assist in making ESA Section 7 determinations for 10 listed freshwater species in the eastern half of North Carolina.

Kathy Matthews is a biologist with over 25 years of Federal government experience. Kathy is the Service's lead for development of this SLOPES Agreement, which is intended to provide a more consistent and efficient approach to ESA Section 7 determinations and receiving concurrence from the Service.  Casey Haywood is a Mitigation Project Manager with the US Army Corps of Engineers and has 8 years of Mitigation experience working for both the State and Federal government.

Together, Kathryn and Casey will provide an overview of the new SLOPES Agreement document, including an overview of the Determination Key, and recommended conservation measures, and a discussion about how the SLOPES Agreement will fit into the ESA review and consultation process for Corps' authorizations.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from two of the leading experts in the field. Join us for an engaging and informative evening!
