Niswander Environmental provides comprehensive mitigation services, specializing in cradle-to-grave project management, including all aspects of mitigation project management such as site selection, design, permitting, construction, native seeding/planting, monitoring, long-term stewardship, and final approval from the state. We have been designing and constructing wetlands since 2004, successfully completing projects for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Iowa DOT, MDOT, local road commissions, local park systems, and private developers and landowners in Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, and Oregon. Over the past 15 years, we have designed 55 mitigation sites totaling over 1,400 acres, including several private and regional mitigation banks for MDOT, local road commissions, and county park systems.

Niswander Environmental has extensive experience with site-specific wetland design implementation, including overseeing wetland construction and serving as the general contractor. Niswander Environmental has completed 34 design/build projects from start to finish. In addition, Niswander Environmental has constructed, seeded, and planted 46 mitigation sites totaling over 1,000 acres with a goal to add another 500 acres of wetlands over the next 5 years. Serving as the designer and contractor is the most effective way to ensure a seamless, successful project. In addition to site-specific mitigation, Niswander Environmental has designed, built, planted, and actively manages 13 wetland mitigation banks totaling over 900 acres, making us one of the largest private wetland bankers in Michigan.
