Natural Resource Management and NEPA/SEPA Preparation and Review

Hamer Environmental provides a wide range of resource management and conservation planning services. We have developed and are currently working on Habitat Conservation Plans for governmental agencies and private landowners. Our environmental scientists have conducted watershed level inventories and analyses, and basin-wide planning. Our multi-disciplinary team combines in-depth understanding of the resource disciplines with on the ground experience in forest practices to yield an integrated approach to watershed analysis, basin planning, and landscape level ecosystem modeling.

Hamer Environmental staff is also experienced with national and state legal and agency requirements for the development of formal NEPA/SEPA documents such as EIS's and EA's. We can integrate many of the varying aspects inherent in such document preparation. Our staff can develop field studies to answer specific questions regarding project impacts.
