Commonwealth’s natural resource team has extensive native plant and wildlife experience working with organizations such as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, US Forest Service, Arizona Game and Fish Department, and various universities. Our natural resource scientists have prepared well over 100 biological reviews, biological assessments and evaluations, and wildlife/species habitat evaluations. Currently, Commonwealth holds permits from the US Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct surveys for threatened and endangered species, and our biologists have attended all the required training workshops offered for federally listed species in the Southwest. The natural resource team includes geologists and geomorphologists with extensive experience throughout Arizona as well as individuals trained in Rosgen stream classification and restoration techniques.
