Federal, state, and local agencies whose purpose is land and water conservation have profound influence over, and obligation to, the stewardship of resources.
Consider, also, that the consolidated landholdings of public institutions make our government bodies, if combined, the largest landowner in the U.S. Stewardship of public lands is also clearly an important obligation of these land-owning public institutions.
AES works alongside, with, and for public agencies at all levels to help them in their role of land, water, and wildlife stewards. With a reputation for credible ecological science and decades of applied experience with native ecosystem restoration, AES lends proven sustainability principles to every project.
Federal-level projects vary broadly – from soil carbon research with sweeping implications for climate change that has been presented to the White House Office of Science – to construction management of the Jackson Park Restoration for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – to aerial imaging for wildfire hazard on remote Bureau of Land Management properties.
State and local projects are equally diverse – ranging from design/build municipal stream restorations, to county-wide planning for nature preserves, to seed and plant sales for restorations large and small.
