Carol Schuler manages a complex of seven refuges throughout the Willamette Valley which extends roughly from Portland to Eugene. Recovery, CPR approach. a collaborative effort by the Service's Refuges. Fisheries, Ecological Services, Migratory Birds and Federal Aid programs to benefit species. The goals include recovering listed species arid conserving others to prevent the need for future listings. The team assessed threats and habitat. They prioritized ecological principles, such as focusing on habitat types rather than individual species and restoring native plant communities.
