Vegetation & Wildlife
Private development typically requires the clearing of land and other activities that can result in effects to vegetation and wildlife. In some cases, these activities may have the potential to affect species that are protected under the federal Endangered Species Act and similar state legislation concerning rare, threatened and endangered species. Avoidance of effects on these species is often critical to gaining environmental approvals for a private development project.
We offer specialists experienced in the identification and evaluation of project effects on vegetation and wildlife, including terrestrial, aquatic and avian species. Our specialists in herpetology, avian species, fish and other natural resources work closely with project planners, architects and engineers to develop creative, cost-effective impact minimization strategies that allow clients to receive regulatory approval.
