Great Ecology is collaborating with Ducks Unlimited to evaluate a 1100-acre tract of land in Louisiana. The client is interested in better understanding the utility of the site’s natural areas for commercial and operational use. This work consists of desktop and field assessment of the property, including an understanding of site context (physical, biological, hydrological and socioeconomic condition); formation and verification of base maps (habitat type, dominant species, invasive species and hydrologic flows); and development of preliminary recommendations for ecological restoration. The next steps in this work will be analysis of restoration options for ecological and economic feasibility, and compliance with the client’s goals for sustainable site reuse.
