A strong land ethic motivates all of our stewardship engagements. As professionals, we perform and supervise ecological restorations using a range of techniques that are appropriate in varied habitats and conditions. As volunteers, we join our communities in cooperative invasive exotic control work, native species replanting, river cleanups, and leading other volunteers in this work. Our practice also creates stewardship opportunities for non-profits through the development and management of grants. This effort is extended into the field where we work to creatively teach others the whys and hows of restoration work and effective monitoring, and reading the native landscape.
