Conservation and Open Space Planning
At Blue Mountain Environmental Consulting, we understand the challenges that landowners and managers face. We provide the tools to meet land use goals including conservation planning, easements, grazing plans, NRCS Technical Services, Rural Land Use Plans and other programs.
As a rancher, agency manager, residential landowner, conservation partner or owner of an exclusive property, we can help you navigate the challenges of incentives and regulatory programs while balancing the needs of your working landscape. With decades of experience on rural lands, our roots are in agriculture.
Whether developing a conservation easement report, developing a grazing plan or forest management plan, we have the tools and expertise necessary to make your project a success.
We work extensively with the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS), numerous land trusts, county governments and the Department of Natural Resources to meet a variety of resource management needs. Request a proposal to discuss how the following services can help you achieve your goals.
