The Wildlife Habitat Council works with its members and other stakeholders to post information about case studies and success stories that use wildlife habitat enhancements and community partnerships in the restoration and reuse of contaminated lands. WHC encourages its members to submit their case studies and success stories.

With support from the U.S. EPA Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER), WHC selected three pilot sites/demonstration projects at which to encourage the restoration and reuse using wildlife habitat enhancements and community partnerships as part of the redevelopment plan. The pilot sites below have been utilized to identify, analyze and profile technical, institutional and social/community barriers that inhibit the incorporation of wildlife habitat enhancements in the land use design of contaminated properties. These case studies demonstrate success stories and obstacles to be overcome when incorporating wildlife habitat enhancements at Superfund, RCRA, and Brownfield sites.
