On- Call Environmental Services Contract, San Bernardino County San Bernardino County Special Districts Department


ECORP Consulting, Inc. has provided multidisciplinary environmental services for a variety of park districts and other infrastructure districts throughout unincorporated San Bernardino County for the San Bernardino County Special Districts Department. Services have included CEQA services and supporting biological resources, cultural resources, air quality, and traffic analysis. Recent projects have included:

  • CEQA Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration and Supporting Technical Studies for Desert View Conservation Area Regional Park, near Joshua Tree, CA. The County of San Bernardino Recreation and Park District proposed improvements to the Joshua Tree Desert View Conservation Area with the designation of horseback riding and hiking trails. In addition, information pavilions, educational signage, parking and staging areas, and shade structures would be constructed. As needed, barriers would be installed to limit access to some of the more fragile habitat areas. A CEQA IS/MND, biological reconnaissance and desert tortoise survey, cultural resources survey, and air quality study were prepared to support the CEQA document.
  • Biological Reconnaissance Survey and Rare Plant Survey for Paradise Park, Big Bear, CA. Biological resources support for a new 5-acre park near Big Bear. ECORP conducted a biological reconnaissance survey to determine the extent of sensitive resources potentially present on the property. This survey examined the site for biological constraints other than rare plant species, such as bald eagle nest sites, jurisdictional waters, and southern rubber boa. ECORP conducted surveys for a suite of rare plant species that are associated with Pebble Plain habitats and other habitat types in the Big Bear area.
  • CEQA Categorical Exemption and Traffic Study for Erwin Ranch Park Community Pool, Big Bear, CA. The County of San Bernardino Special Districts Department proposed improvements to the Erwin Ranch Sports Complex in Big Bear, California. The improvements included an expanded pool and associated amenities and demolition/new construction of a bathroom. A traffic study was prepared in support of the Categorical Exemption for the project.
