We have over 15 years of experience restoring and enhancing native habitat including native grasslands, freshwater and tidal wetlands, bioswales, vernal pools, riparian woodland, coastal sage scrub, coastal dune scrub, chaparral, desert scrub, wildflower fields, Joshua tree woodland, and coast and valley oak woodland. KR&EC can plan, design, implement, and monitor habitat restoration projects including teaming with subcontractors for plant propagation, plant installation, and maintenance activities.
Ecological Restoration Planning and Design
We prepare habitat restoration plans including conceptual to full detail design drawings which may require teaming with GIS or AutoCAD subcontractors depending on the scope of services. We assist clients with preparing restoration plans that meet mitigation requirements using cost effective approaches based on our experience and collaboration with other restoration ecologists as new techniques are discovered.
Native Seed Collection and Plant Propagation
We can provide native seed collection and plant propagation services and/or team with subcontractors. We can direct nurseries on identification of native plant species and potential sources for collection materials. We have a small greenhouse and an existing source of native plant materials on our 0.25 acre property in Orcutt, California.
KR&EC promotes the use of local seed and plant sources to preserve genetic integrity and maximize restoration success.
