Falcon served the Commonwealth of Kentucky as the technical expert for botanical assessments of wetlands throughout Kentucky. A team of private and public professionals collaborated to evaluate the overall condition of the statewide wetland areas. The findings of this project not only helped to improve the nation’s water quality, but will also protect, sustain, and restore the health of critical natural ecosystems throughout a multi-state region. In addition to developing a further understanding of the complex matrices involved in wetlands, Falcon’s role on this project contributed significantly to the development of engineered wetland practices throughout the United States. Finally, Falcon provided leadership to this broad team to determine future water quality needs and programs throughout Kentucky.
