The Department of Defense (DoD) is steward of an estimated 29 million acres of land in the United States that contains both invaluable cultural and natural resources. In order to support military readiness while preserving the nation’s natural and cultural heritage, the DoD Legacy Resource Management Program (Legacy) was established by Congress in 1990. The goal of the Legacy Program is to protect, enhance, and conserve natural and cultural resources using the three principles of stewardship, leadership, and partnership. The program is focused on ecosystem management, regional wide-spread conservation, partnerships, multidisciplinary integrated conservation efforts, and technological implementation. In 1997 Legislation for National Defense Authorization Act was established, giving more definition to the Legacy Program. Funded projects must have regional or DoD wide significance, meet legal requirements, and be effectively managed at the DoD level.
