The Burnham Plan Centennial - Bold Plans, Big Dreams

Program Partners


With approximately 34,000 dedicated civilians and soldiers, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers delivers engineering services worldwide with environmental sustainability as a guiding principle. Our men and women are protecting and restoring the Nation’s environment including critical efforts in the Everglades, the Louisiana coast and along many of our Nation’s major waterways. The Corps is also cleaning sites contaminated with hazardous, toxic or radioactive waste and material in an effort to sustain the environment.
The Corps works to strengthen national security by building and maintaining America’s infrastructure and providing military facilities. It is currently dredging America’s waterways to support the movement of critical commodities while providing recreation opportunities at our campgrounds, lakes and marinas.
