Mitigation and Restoration
Pacific OpenSpace installs and maintains restoration projects in all plant communities. We have successfully restored riparian zones, tidal marsh, brackish marsh, native perennial grassland, oak woodland, coastal bluff, sand dune and coastal scrub. If a project needs custom propagation of local natives, our North Coast Native Nursery can grow the plants in the optimum container size, and have them ready for installation at the proper time.
