Natural Systems Design (NSD) is a team of scientists, engineers, and planners who are also farmers, fishermen and impassioned river people who have organized our lives to have a positive influence 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.
We provide... analysis of the historical ecology of the watershed to identify natural templates that serve as the basis for restoration design. Whether the goal is to improve degraded river systems and recover fish habitat or to provide local flood relief, our science and engineering services aim to improve functional habitats through ecological connectivity and restoration of physical processes.
