Ecosystem Restoration

Utilizing a comprehensive understanding of the natural world and proven best practices, Straughan provides a full suite of ecological restoration services. We’ve designed and studied restoration projects for streams, wetlands, forests, meadows, and coastal areas.

Our scientists and engineers specialize in ecological restoration and bring a body of knowledge obtained from the experience of hundreds of prior restoration projects. We guide the restoration process through site identification, cost evaluation, modeling and outcome prediction, permit documentation, design plans and construction documents, construction monitoring, and adaptive management.

Straughan emphasizes the need for measurable objectives that achieve results for environmental compliance, ecosystems, and communities.
