The purpose of this program is to ensure that SLAC adheres to all pertinent environmental regulations as well as best practices regarding biological resources.

For the purposes of this program, biological resources include flora (plants), fauna (animals), and natural features, such as water bodies and wetlands, that support wildlife habitat and/or are subject to regulatory protection.

It covers review for wildlife-related environmental concerns and implementation of related controls for general site operations and maintenance activities, construction (including excavation and demolition work), and landscaping.

It applies to workers, supervisors, field construction managers, project managers, area/building managers, the Biological Resources Protection program manager, and Facilities and Operations.
