Habitat loss and fragmentation are the greatest threats to species biodiversity. In our nation’s more arid environments, the vast bulk of all biodiversity is found in the increasingly fragile riparian buffers of our watersheds. Healthy floodplains and other ecosystem functions rely directly on vital intact buffers. For these important reasons, conservation and restoration activities must increasingly focus on repair, renewal, and preservation of these precious riparian areas.
While some may see only the surface of the water, Trout Headwaters’ Team, looks holistically at landscapes and watersheds, striving always to leverage the true “silver bullet” of restoration – prudent resource management and maintenance. And while so-called “active” stream and wetland restoration can play a role in effecting ecological improvement within our watersheds, no degree of manipulation will overcome poorly conceived or poorly implemented long-term management.
Cost-effective strategies for stream, river and wetland restoration, management and maintenance have been our firm’s hallmark since 1996. To learn more >Contact UsTweet
