Our Results

Transforming our relationship with the environment – one project at a time.

We are interdependent

We see a world where the interdependent relationship between humans and the environment is transformed and reimagined.

Our projects aim to restore the symbiotic relationship between people and their environment while contributing to sustainable economic growth. Daily, we see the positive results our projects provide: converting poorly-functioning systems to thriving and healthy ecosystems. And we do this in the most cost-effective and timely fashion in the industry.

Below are highlights of our project work across the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a mitigation project take on average?

Project timelines vary greatly depending on regional factors, landowner specifics, project components, and resource agency-driven timelines. Ideally, we like to identify high quality projects with landowners so we can design, permit, and construct within 2 years of initiation. And, depending on where the project is located there can be anywhere from 5 to 12 years of post-construction monitoring. Based on the timelines we have seen throughout the industry, our project schedules and approvals are faster than most. However, it's critically important for our landowners and customers to understand that many circumstances outside of our control can bring additional delays to project implementation. We communicate each aspect of the project's phase and progress to our clients, and make ourselves available for questions at any time.

What is your ideal project?

Truthfully, we love all our projects as they ultimately lead to something significant. We love projects where we get to restore the environment and improve the quality of people's lives. Large project footprints, highly degraded systems in need of improvement, and projects that include exposure to society in a way that helps to promote restoration - factors like these get us really excited.

Do you focus on specific mitigation sectors or specific land types?

"Specific" is not necessarily a word we use when choosing project direction. For example, we may have more stream restoration projects then species banks, but that is more demand-driven than anything. Project diversity and positive impact are the factors that drive us! If the project has the potential to positively impact people and the environment, then we would love to create solutions for these situations.
