Published July 17, 2023

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, recently named Steve Eggers from near Readstown, Wisconsin, as one of its 2023 hall of fame inductees.

Steve Eggers served the Corps of Engineers for nearly 44 years, most recently as a senior ecologist for the St. Paul District regulatory division. Eggers substantially contributed to aquatic resource protection and restoration throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin by publishing technical manuals, contributing to the design, construction, and monitoring of wetland restoration projects, and serving as an instructor and mentor to thousands of federal and state regulators, consultants, compensatory mitigation bank sponsors and the public. He retired in 2021.

Eggers’ positive influence spans the country, as evidenced by his contributions to national committees and unsurpassed technical assistance to other districts working to improve their compensatory mitigation programs. 

“Mr. Eggers exemplifies the Army values, as he worked tirelessly to ensure successful wetland restoration and mentor wetland professionals throughout the country,” said his former supervisor Desiree Morningstar, chief of the technical services branch. “His work will have enduring impacts on wetland restoration and the Corps’ compensatory mitigation program.”
