We got our start in 1984 when a few fly-fishing scientists combined their passion for rivers with knowledge of geomorphology, fish biology, and hydrology to return abused trout streams into the Blue Ribbon fisheries they once were. We took a team approach utilizing an array of disciplines that actively accounted for many interests, including natural processes. Our team took a risk on advancing this new approach. We launched the business with $4,000, an IBM typewriter, and desks made of old doors and file cabinets. Almost four decades later, we continue to develop cutting-edge designs for aquatic restoration projects that range from tidal restoration, to dam removal, to urban habitat improvements – just to name a few.
