Typical projects involve an initial assessment of the property to determine the scope of the revegetation or erosion control effort. If the project does not require agency approval, confluence can develop a site-specific planting plan, establishment maintenance program, and an irrigation plan. If your project does need agency approval, Confluence has a network of professionals that can cater to the entire spectrum of habitat restoration projects.
Confluence specializes in the implementation of California native plant revegetation, erosion control, and irrigation plans. With projects ranging from the South Bay of San Francisco to the Big Sur coast, Confluence has worked with dozens of public and private agencies to restore some of California’s most sensitive habitats including wetlands, grasslands, riparian forest, and woodlands.
The maintenance team at Confluence implements site-specific management plans with routine operations that include: invasive exotic weed species identification and management, native plant identification and cultivation, plant health maintenance, monitoring and reporting, and irrigation schedule development and system maintenance.
The science team is proudly an aquatic resource generalist species; however, at the root of all our environmental work is the long-term protection and monitoring of Pacific salmonids and their habitat. In pursuit of technical data for resource planners and public agencies Confluence provides technical staff with field expertise in local fisheries, geomorphology, hydrology, ecology, and water quality.
