Wetland Delineations, Natural Resource Inventories, and Ecological Studies
Land Use biologists and ecologists are experienced in the delineation of freshwater and tidal wetlands according to federal (Section 404) and state (Articles 24 and 25) regulations. Our staff has delineated over 2,000 wetlands throughout Long Island, New York City, New Jersey, and the Hudson Valley.
Our staff are experts in the identification of Long Island’s native wildlife, vegetation, and ecological communities. Our staff analyzes the impacts of a project on a site’s natural resources and makes recommendations for the preservation and protection of valuable habitats including freshwater wetlands, tidal wetlands, and significant upland habitats. Land Use scientists have excellent writing and communication skills and are adept at translating the findings of field studies into well-prepared and organized reports including Environmental Impact Statements, Environmental Assessments, Natural Resource Inventories, and Essential Fish Habitat Assessments.
