Ecological Restoration

Ecological Restoration for Healthy Ecosystems...

Ecological restoration is the practice of renewing and restoring degraded, damaged or destroyed ecosystems and habitats through direct action and intervention.  

 

Genus Loci has experience and expertise in the design and implementation of ecological restoration projects in a variety of ecosystems, including shorelines, creeks and ravines, wetlands, ponds, meadows and forests. We integrate a variety of soil bioengineering methods and techniques in many of our projects to ensure short term site stability during the establishment phase.  We are very adept at working on near-water sites with difficult access and challenging terrain.

 

We have developed a solid track record with the primary regulatory agencies in Ontario, including  Conservation Authorities and the Niagara Escarpment Commission, and are intimately familiar with permitting requirements. In tandem with associate environmental professionals, we conduct the necessary background biophysical studies, inventories and assessments, we prepare all the necessary site plans, planting plans and working drawings, and we coordinate permitting processes. We can even assist with the procurement of government agency grants and funding for qualified projects.
