CEMML has supported military readiness and resource conservation for more than three decades. Our experience and the resources of CSU allow us to tailor and apply innovative, practical methods to meet the needs of diverse managers of public lands.
CEMML works closely with the Department of Defense, US Army Corps of Engineers, National Park Service, and other departments and agencies through cooperative agreements, grants, and contracts. Our resource management and planning, research, education, and outreach efforts inform military and other federal managers as they meet their dual mandates of using and conserving public-trust resources.

CEMML biologists at Fort Johnson, located in west-central Louisiana, are working to change the negative perception that people have about snakes. Education and outreach to both soldiers and the broader community is a key effort in helping to ensure the survival of one of North America’s rarest snake species, the Louisiana pinesnake.
In June, CEMML biologist Chris Melder was featured in Thrive Magazine. The “cool jobs” article highlighted Melder’s work involving the conservation of endangered species including the Red-cockaded Woodpecker and the Louisiana Pine Snake. Based at Fort Johnson (formerly Fort Polk) in west-central Louisiana, part of Melder’s role entails education and outreach in the community, including local schools.
Teaching local residents and children how to take care of their Oʻahu home is the specialty of CEMML’s Angie Arroyo and Kristy Morris. As water programs support staff, they help Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, an Air Force and Navy base, implement its stormwater program. As part of their role, they provide educational programs at local libraries and schools and work with adult volunteer groups.
