Threatened and Endangered Species Training

Borton-Lawson’s Environmental team recently completed a Threatened and Endangered (T&E) Species Training for members of PPL’s staff. PPL asked Borton-Lawson to help educate their staff on how to handle potential threatened and endangered species issues they encounter on their projects.

The training consisted of both a classroom work and a field view.

The presentation included an overview of the T&E species that are often encountered on projects within the PPL service region. Some of these species include bog turtles, timber rattlesnakes, northern long eared and Indiana bats and various rare plant species.

 

 

The field component involved a visit to several unique habitat locations near Big Pocono State Park in Monroe County, where many of these species may be found. This helped to show the key factors of what to look for on PPL related projects where T&E species may be impacted.
