THE ENERGY + PASSION
We take pride in our muddy boots and frayed jackets. We care about the land and spend our days getting down and dirty to protect and restore it.
Crawford Land Management has been completing ecological restoration and shoreline stabilization projects for nearly a decade and our experience has covered a range of project scopes and scales. We’ve restored salt marshes, protected coastal banks, created specialized habitat for endangered species, and so much more. We’ve gotten a number of these projects under our belt and feel confident that we’ve learned what makes a project work, but we always love taking new approaches and expanding our ecological horizon.
We have an awesome team of intelligent, passionate and all-around fun individuals who love doing this work and are dedicated to taking project goals from a concept to a reality.
