Habitat Improvement and Restoration
The Society for Ecological Restoration defines ecological restoration as an "intentional activity that initiates or accelerates the recovery of an ecosystem with respect to its health, integrity and sustainability". The practice of ecological restoration includes wide scope of projects including: establishing or re-establishing functional wetlands, re-establishing the relationship between rivers and their floodplains, enhancing or restoring degraded stream channels, erosion control, reforestation, the re-establishment of native species, removal of non-native species, revegetation of disturbed areas, day-lighting streams, as well as habitat and range improvement for targeted species.
Our ecological consulting team is multidisciplinary and includes experts in: fisheries, wetlands, botanical, wildlife, GIS, water quality, limnology, hydrology, hydraulics, recreation, watershed planning, structural and civil engineering and socioeconomics. Depending on the scale and details of project requirements, we conduct and/or manage studies by pooling the most applicable expertise into a tailored technical team to provide holistic solutions to habitat improvement and restoration projects.
