Blue Mountain Environmental addressed address wetland permitting questions and cast light on a variety of other management issues. The 500-acre ranch contained the confluence of two streams with expansive wetlands as well as a large fen. The new owners desired a trail network for fishing access and cycling. They had a variety of questions pertaining to beaver management, fish habitat, wetland permit requirements, weed management and trail restoration.

The BMEC team identified wetlands along proposed trail alignments and prepared a wetland delineation report. We held numerous conversations with the landowner to better understand their needs.  Our staff conducted extensive research with Wyoming Fish and Game, the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other organizations. We provided findings, recommendations and supporting literature in brief memos pertaining to fish habitat, beaver management, ecological restoration and noxious weed management.
