Understanding the Environment, Accounting for Regulations
Watershed scientists use the latest scientific methods to assess wetlands, streams, wildlife, fish, and trees and provide accurate documentation. We can help design innovative, functional, and attractive mitigation and restoration plans that augment the property and ecological functions, and meet regulatory requirements, from permit submittal through construction.
Watershed also leads the field in non-traditional methods of mitigation, including mitigation banking, in-lieu fee programs, and restoration credits.

It's a frequent question among property owners of all types. Katy Crandall, ecologist and arborist with The Watershed Company, explains the difference.
Online inventory maps, like King County iMap and Snohomish County’s PDS Map Portal, are a useful resource for learning about your property’s critical areas—to a point. In this blog, Sam Payne, ecologist at The Watershed Company, explains how inventory maps fit into the planning process.
