We support community and ecosystem resilience to prepare for and recover from climate change consequences.

Community Resilience

Our resiliency team brings a suite of expertise that combines resilience, restoration, and market-based solutions to uplift local economies and improve ecosystem functions.

We work to improve communities through transformative policy change, science-based planning, and on-the-ground projects. We prioritize nature-based solutions that benefit all species and the habitats on which they depend. We bring resiliency services to bear throughout project timelines, including planning, design and approvals, implementation, and long-term project support.

We help our clients position themselves for state and federal grant dollars by developing plans, expanding their outreach capabilities, and prioritizing projects designed to increase organizational capacity. We work directly with clients toward co-equal goals of positioning organizations for state and federal grant dollars while creating sound policy analysis and advocacy frameworks.
