Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
Biohabitats, Inc., a nationally recognized ecological restoration, conservation planning and regenerative design firm, has been awarded one of three multiple award Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts with the National Park Service (NPS) to provide revegetation services in the eastern U.S.
The preservation and restoration of local plant genotypes on National Park lands is an increasing challenge for the U.S. Department of the Interior's National Park Service. The NPS Natural Resource Management Policy states that the NPS "manages the natural resources of parks to maintain them in an unimpaired condition for present and future generations…" Through this contract, Biohabitats will help the National Park Service address the challenge and meet its mission by restoring plant communities, stabilizing slopes and riverbanks, repatriating rare, threatened and endangered plant species, and managing invasive plant species.
"Plants give people context and connection; they frame a site and help create lasting positive impressions for visitors," said Biohabitats president, Keith Bowers. "We are proud to work with the National Park Service to restore degraded ecosystems to ultimately benefit biodiversity as well as the park visitor experience long into the future."
Founded in 1982, Biohabitats, Inc. is an ecological restoration, conservation planning and regenerative design firm headquartered in its Chesapeake/Delaware Bay Bioregional office in Baltimore, MD. The company also has offices serving the Bioregions of the Hudson River, Great Lakes, Ohio River, Southeast, San Francisco Bay and Southern Rocky Mountains.
