Stream + Shore Restoration

AES has pioneered some of the most successful, and demonstrative, stream restoration projects in the country, beginning with the Skokie River restoration at the Chicago Botanic Garden in the 1980s. Designing with nature – rather than trying to fight against dynamic natural systems with artificial hardscapes – AES provides sustainable solutions that grow ever stronger with time. Rather than requiring expensive repair and re-investment every few decades, natural design offers multiple benefits that today are well known in the conservation community.
