Our dedicated team of GIS specialists, conservation planners, ecologists, and ecological designers understands the urgency of conserving and restoring landscapes to help mitigate land-use change, climate change, and other threats to the natural environment. We help clients integrate ecology into actionable land use decisions, including design, policy, and the sustainable management of our shared resources. We offer land planning services and ecological restoration services from city parks to multi-county scales. Our ecological services aim to create sustainable and environmentally friendly natural spaces that seamlessly integrate with surrounding ecosystems. Our regional plans, including conservation plans and watershed plans, harness the power of GIS and guide the conservation of species, water resources, and ecosystem services over vast landscapes.

We consult and provide ecological services for landscape architecture projects, city planning, and conservation plans. We conduct comprehensive land assessments to identify potential threats and opportunities for ecological improvement. With a keen focus on long-term viability, we develop management plans that align with sustainable practices, conserve natural resources, advocate for climate mitigation strategies, and promote biodiversity while maintaining the economic and social goals of our clients. We take pride in our strong foundation in regional research and analysis. We stay up-to-date with the latest scientific findings, environmental policies, and conservation initiatives to ensure that our strategies are always grounded in the best available knowledge.

We have collaborated with land trusts, private landowners, urban planning firms, landscape architecture firms, cities, towns, states, agencies, developers, and other clients to protect valuable ecological resources and help reap the benefits of ecosystem services in efficient and cost-effective ways. We have worked with land trusts and municipalities to determine conservation priorities on over 80 million acres and have conducted site assessments on over 50,000 acres of land. We have been involved in the implemented ecological plans and restoration as a part of integrated teams on over 1,0500 acres of land.
