  • Grantwriting, funding development, fiscal administration and reporting for restoration and conservation grants and projects.
  • Outreach and public involvement to engage stakeholders in restoration, environmental stewardship and conservation.
  • Restoration and conservation planning.
  • Alternatives evaluation and environmental assessment.
  • Permitting and regulatory compliance.
  • Construction contracting and management.
  • Restoration and conservation monitoring, assessment and reporting.
  • GIS mapping.
  • "Tech transfer"--developing manuals, conferences, etc., to promote and facilitate environmental restoration and conservation.
  • Restoration and environmental communications of all types, in all media--print, Web and video.

In addition, CER maintains a network of partners that can provide additional expertise--from hydrology to toxicology, website development to video production.  Between our in-house capacity and our partners' talents, we'll provide start-to-finish management of restoration projects--or task-specific support.
