Paul Zeph, Coordinator for the Mid-Atlantic Highlands Action Program with the Department of Environmental Program, provides an introduction to the program.

The Highlands Action Program is a Federal/State/NGO partnership for collaborative monitoring, research, management and restoration activities in the Mid-Atlantic Appalachian region, which includes the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia. This program focuses on the Appalachian forest as an ecosystem, with particular emphasis on restoring and protecting the forested headwaters of the region. The program aims to improve water quality, living resources, and habitat in the region; and to foster stewardship of resources through an outreach program for public information and education.
