Restoring Washington's Waters

Who we are

Natural Systems Design and Coastal Geologic Services

We are a team of scientists, engineers, and planners who are also farmers, fishermen and impassioned ocean and river people who have organized our lives to have a positive BIG impact upon our world. Through landscape scale restoration of ecosystems and physical processes, we strive to promote quality of life for local communities and restore balance to natural systems.


Founded in 2003, the firm’s design approach adheres to the philosophy that clean water and
functional natural processes are critical to sustaining a healthy
aquatic ecosystem.


Through combining ecology, geomorphology, hydrology,
hydraulics, and engineering services, we design rivers, streams, shorelines and wetlands that look and perform as functional ecosystems.


We are an interdisciplinary team of 51 professional employees.

Senior designers each have 10 – 20 years of construction
supervision experience, and bring this knowledge to bear in creating buildable and cost-effective designs.
