Core Environmental Assessment Services

Natural Resource Field Assessment

Verdanterra’s wetland ecologists, wildlife biologists, and soil scientists are experts in conducting natural resource field assessments. We thrive on complex linear projects such as those associated with pipelines and transmission lines. Our staff understands the value of rapidly collecting high-quality and defensible data. We have experience in all corners of the country, and our staff is qualified to work in a wide range of ecosystems.

Our projects and expertise span the energy, transportation, government, and commercial industries. We provide field- based services as our core business, so we are able to supplement your team or lead field-based programs. Our staff knows permitting and design constraints and will alert the project team to potential critical issues early.

Wetland and Waterway Delineations

Our scientists have experience delineating and permitting projects across the continental U.S. We solve problems for our clients as they relate to identifying resources, evaluating functions and values, mitigating impacts, permitting actions, and monitoring restoration.
We have established solid working relationships with regulatory agencies, and our regulatory knowledge and scientific expertise are well respected. To support these efforts, Verdanterra employs an experienced team of regulatory experts who are familiar with various wetland ecosystems; our focus, however, is using regulation to support our field practices.
