Habitat Restoration, Conservation, and Land Management Services
ECORP is very experienced in providing Habitat Restoration, Conservation, and Land Management Services. Whether working on a restoration-oriented project or a construction project that requires habitat mitigation, ECORP manages projects through the entirety of their lifespan, conducts due diligence assessments and initial biological surveys, prepares associated permitting and permit compliance documentation throughout construction, and designs impact mitigation plans to protect sensitive resources such as wetlands and other aquatic resources, special-status species, and protected habitat types.

Habitat Restoration Services
ECORP plans, coordinates, and implements restoration projects to improve fish and wildlife habitats, restore native ecosystems, and mitigate impacts resulting from construction projects or new land-use operations. As a leader in the creation and re-establishment of vernal pool habitats, we work on a diverse range of restoration projects in habitats including coastal sage scrub in San Diego County, desert scrub in the Mojave Desert, oak woodlands and needlegrass grassland in the Central Valley, and anadromous fish habitat and riparian vegetation in the Feather River.

We offer cutting-edge technology to augment restoration design and monitoring, including Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS/drone) photo and video collection, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) spatial analysis including lidar-based watershed analysis, and environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling to non-invasively detect species presence in waterways.

We provide Conservation Services both to landowners who are seeking to earn income while protecting their property, ranch, or farm in perpetuity, as well as to project proponents seeking land for mitigation purposes.
