MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Corps Foundation have announced the annual National Excellence in Partnerships Award for 2021. The award recognizes outstanding contributions by a partner agency to USACE recreation and environmental stewardship programs.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mobile District’s partner Friends of Lake Lanier (FLL) were one of five partners across the nation nominated for the award for their dedication to improving recreational development and sustainability at Lake Lanier.
