Biodiversity Conservation and Monitoring

We assess, design, restore, monitor, and maintain project sites and natural areas, with special consideration to threatened and endangered species, invasive species management, while promoting native landscapes and the highest ecological integrity.

Ecological Assessments

We work closely with clients and government agencies to identify stakeholders and key issues of concern, develop strategies to successfully address those issues, identify major permitting and legal requirements, and ultimately meet federal, state and local environmental policy and international standards.
