With a diverse group of biologists, ecologists, paleontologists, and other technical experts, we address biological, aquatic, terrestrial and water issues with an ultimate goal of managing the natural resources on which we all depend.

Working with both private and government clients, we specialize in all areas of natural resource management, including planning; mitigation; and permitting related to the Endangered Species Act (ESA), Clean Water Act (CWA), and other critical legislation for terrestrial and aquatic species and their habitats.


Biological Sciences

SWCA’s biological science services are rooted in a deep understanding of animals, plants, and microbes as well as the terrestrial and aquatic habitats where they are found. Our wide variety of biological services includes locating and identifying species, assessing habitat conditions, determining activities that may affect species, developing mitigation strategies, and monitoring those strategies to determine their short- and long-term effectiveness.

Services Include:


Earth Sciences

Earth sciences play an important role in the discovery of energy, mineral, and water resources, in planning future development, assessing the potential impact of hazards such as landslides or earthquakes, and for preserving prehistoric resources. SWCA has teams of scientists and regulatory experts ready to guide your project through any challenges that relate to the land and what lies beneath.
