When we evaluate a site, we look to the top of the ridge and beyond. We evaluate the entire system of soils, vegetation, habitat, and ecosystem processes to ensure efficiency and sustainability. The collective knowledge of our natural resources scientists advances the race to integrate science with design. Knowledge gained through the use of advanced technologies — geographic information systems, GPS surveys, and new concepts in conservation biology — helps us to understand ecosystems and prepare the restoration design and long-term management strategies necessary to create sustainable projects. Our efforts help to cultivate and sustain a healthy global environment.
