Davey Resource Group, Inc.’s team of botanists and biologists perform surveys to confirm the absence or presence of threatened and endangered wetland and non-wetland plant and animal species.
We understand the importance to communicate with stakeholders, environmental consultants, and developers, so obstacles and challenges of endangered species findings are immediately known to help minimize the costly impact on project timelines.
Through our ongoing training and expertise, we ensure our initial habitat reconnaissance studies maximize the data we collect. From our findings—which includes GIS data, land cover mapping and field surveys—we develop plans to aid in the coordination with state and federal agencies in compliance with the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA).
We have decades of project experience related to state and federally threatened or endangered species, ranging from the Indiana bat to mussel species such as the creek heelsplitter (Lasmigona compressa)
Our services include:
The Endangered Species Act, authorized in 1973, provides a framework for the protection of endangered and threatened species and their habitats. The Endangered Species Act provides states with financial assistance and other incentives to develop and maintain conservation programs.
When development projects have the potential to impact protected species, expert survey, identification, and remediation may be required to ensure Endangered Species Act compliance.
