The Profiles feature of our blog highlights companies we are inspired by. We are excited to feature Biohabitats in Cheri’s current article written for ASLA’s “The Field“.
Biohabitats is a firm with a mission some might find audacious: to restore the earth and inspire ecological stewardship. The firm has been working towards that mission for more than 30 years, helping communities improve water quality, protect and increase wildlife habitat, restore degraded ecosystems, and reconnect people to nature through ecological restoration, conservation planning and regenerative design.
Since its founding in 1982 by Keith Bowers, FASLA, Biohabitats has grown to become one of the most highly relevant ecological design firms in the country. Biohabitats’ interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and designers embraces a collaborative relationship with other like-minded firms, where applied science pays a pivotal role in addressing some of our most complex ecological and social problems.
Recognizing that nature is a dynamic force that affects people as much asitis influenced by their actions, the team at Biohabitats approaches every project with the understanding that outcomes–whether they be a restored stream, a natural wastewater treatment/recycling system, a living shoreline, or a sustainable campus master plan–are most powerful when they support whole, living systems that lead to ecological, cultural and economic benefits.
