Ecological Restoration

"Through prairie conversion, the District eliminated regular mowing events as well as broad use of pesticide and fertilizers. The deep roots help infiltrate water and break up compacted soils. We have seen an increase in biodiversity and a reduction of the urban geese."


From nature preserves to mitigation areas to infrastructure projects, CDF helps its clients bring back native landscapes. Our diverse staff of scientists and design professionals works together to ensure each restoration project is ecologically sound and aesthetically pleasing. We can help with all aspects of wetland, prairie, and woodland restorations, from initial site evaluation and natural resources planning to detailed design, construction plans, actual construction, and post-occupancy monitoring. This comprehensive approach leads to projects that become self-sustaining, extremely low maintenance, and biologically rich.
