Oh, deer: JBLE environmental ensures wildlife aids mission
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
Joint Base Langley-Eustis is comprised of roughly 11,000 acres, 8,000 of which are part of the natural forest landscape of Fort Eustis.
In charge of preserving the natural resources across those 8,000 acres, enabling mission success across the installation, is the 733rd Civil Engineer Division environmental element.
One of their most crucial roles is maintaining the deer population. This ensures the livelihood and protection of the installation’s wildlife, while also maintaining adequate training areas for U.S. Army Soldiers.
