Mitigation and Conservation on a Landscape Scale

Committed to restoring and conserving America’s wetlands, streams, and wildlife habitats.

Westervelt Ecological Services (WES), established in 2006, comprises ecologists and wildlife biologists skilled in identifying, creating, restoring, and protecting wildlife and plant habitat.

WES’ experience working with regulators to meet project compliance and offset needs is demonstrated through our extensive project footprint. Our portfolio of mitigation banking, permittee-responsible mitigation, and in-lieu fee projects includes over 30,000 acres of restored, managed, and protected lands. Our banks provide habitat for approximately 50 federally or state-protected plants and animals.

A Message from Westervelt Ecological Services


To Our Clients, Agency Staff, and Partners,

Over the past several weeks, we have made adjustments to how we operate to continue to provide for the safety and health of our employees, our contractors and vendors, our customers and other partners, along with their families and loved ones. Changes in our operations have included implementing a no-visitors policy across the Company, social distancing and disinfecting standards, some remote work assignments, and education about how to stay safe and healthy during the current pandemic.

We are proud of our legacy of innovation, dating back more than a century. In the current pandemic situation, our employees found new ways of leading, connecting and communicating that kept our Company as a leader in our industry.

As we begin to see a return to normal operations, we’ll continue to follow recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure health and safety. Our employees are returning to office locations as appropriate, but we still have a no-visitors policy in place. Any contractors who work with us are required to complete a questionnaire and meet specific criteria to help keep everyone in the workplace safe and healthy.

WES staff are available to discuss your projects or any questions. Thank you for your continued support, and stay safe.

Greg Sutter, General Manager and Vice President
