Boulder County Parks and Open Space (BCPOS) needed to conduct breeding bird data analysis for data from 25 individual properties throughout the County. Dudek analyzed the data to assess the effects of various land management actions on the avian population and identify trends in bird populations at each property over time to determine potential correlations
The Great Parks of Hamilton County, located in Ohio, needed to map their deer population. Dudek performed an innovative and cost-effective aerial infrared white-tailed deer study and prepared a report summarizing the findings.
The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) Fisheries planned to restore hydrologic connectivity, floodplain processes, and riparian habitat along river miles 1.6–2.7 (20 acres) of the North Fork Touchet River, near the community of Baileysburg, Washington. The project was subject to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and the Bonneville Power
The Sander Vernal Pool Restoration Project, located in Kearney Mesa, San Diego helped the City of San Diego secure vernal pool mitigation credit for the Pure Water San Diego project. Dudek used innovative technologies, including ground penetrating radar and UAV lidar surveying to provide a detailed restoration design that increased regulatory agency certainty and contributed to
The Shire is a John Yeon, national register-eligible, historic-designed landscape located along the north shoreline of the Columbia River, directly across from Oregon’s Multnomah Falls. Dudek completed a Cultural Landscape Report to provide the University of Oregon with management protocols and treatments for the long-term preservation and protection of The Shire following storm damage during
CALFIRE and the Santa Clara County FireSafe Council undertook a project to reduce vegetative fuel along 6.5 miles of SR-17 in Santa Clara County to protect the community of Los Gatos and water and power infrastructure, as well as provide a safe escape route and refuge for residents and travelers in the Santa Cruz Mountains
The Stadium Wetlands Restoration is a 57-acre advanced permittee-responsible compensatory mitigation project that generates wetland mitigation credits for use by the City of San Diego. Dudek oversaw project installation and also conducted restoration monitoring during the five-year maintenance and monitoring period on behalf of the City.
Southern California Edison (SCE) sought to expand the existing 174-acre Wheeler North Reef, a manmade rocky reef, off the coast of San Clemente, California by an additional 202 acres as mitigation related to the former operation of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). Dudek provided CEQA planning, marine mammal monitoring, and tribal consultation, including
The South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan (SSHCP) and Aquatic Resources Plan (ARP) is a regional effort by Sacramento County, the cities of Galt and Rancho Cordova, Sacramento County Water Agency, and Capital Southeast Connector Joint Powers Authority. The SSHCP provides development and infrastructure projects with streamlined, predictable federal and state permitting processes while creating a
The Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) is a comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional, long-term effort to conserve 146 plant and animal species, including endangered and threatened species, and associated habitats on more than 1.2 million acres in western Riverside County. The MSHCP goal is to set aside 500,000 acres for preservation by 2029.
