SC Johnson Campus Native Habitat Restoration

SC Johnson contracted ERC to plan and execute the restoration of its green space areas at their Waxdale Facility in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.  The ongoing project commenced in 2008 and included the hydrological and vegetative restoration of 60 acres of undeveloped green-space.  Restoration activities included increasing the stormwater functionality of two wet detention basins and a drainage channel, enhancing wetland infiltration, invasive species management, converting engineered and dredged units into native vegetation, and implementing prescribed burn regimes on established warm season grass installations on-site.  ERC incorporated extensive project plan writing and budgeting into this project.  Mr. Frazer was also commissioned by SC Johnson’s sister company, Diversey, for a multiple year contract to plan and execute prescribed burns on native grassland units at their Sturtevant Corporate Headquarters.

Waste Management Corporation Wildlife Habitat Council Certification, Land Management

Waste Management Corporation contracted ERCas the lead ecological consultant to manage their 720-acre Orchard Ridge Recycling and Disposal Facility in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.  In this capacity ERC facilitated the certification process for the Orchard Hills Site in a national corporate lands wildlife habitat project through the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC).  As part of this process, ERC coordinated with several local non-profit groups to initiate multiple wildlife habitat enhancement projects on the Orchard Hills Site.  These projects include:  shoreline native aquatic plant installations, forested floodplain wetland management, stream restoration, upland prairie installation, native tree and shrub planting, native ephemeral woodland species management, prescribed fire planning and implementation, timber harvests, woody invasive species eradication and replacement (with sustainable native vegetation), and planning of youth based hands-on volunteer events at the Hidden Springs Wetland Complex on the Orchard Ridge Site.

Dane County – Badger Prairie Health Care Center – Regrading and Prairie Restoration

Beginning in the fall of 2016, ERC began the Badger Prairie Health Care Center – Regrading and Prairie Restoration project in Verona, Wisconsin for Dane County.  The project includes the soil regrading of swales/detention basins and open fields, site preparation, native seed and native vegetative mat (NVM) and two seasons of restoration maintenance on slightly greater than 18 acres of swales, detention basins, and native prairie.  The project includes installation of NVM and native seed on nearly all of the 18 acres.  Maintenance will be conducted on approximately the entire project area following completion of restoration installation.  ERC installed the erosion control material immediately following the grading.  However, due to the large amounts of rain the site received, areas of the project area had to be regraded and have the erosion control material reinstalled.  Even though there were weather challenges, ERC was able to complete the installation on time.  The final stages of the installation were completed by December of 2017.  There will be continued maintenance conducted throughout the 2018 growing season.

B. Bruce Krier Conservancy

Since 2009, ERC has managed the Conservancy. This work included comprehensive restoration design, permitting, and implementation of a 29-acre wetland restoration area within the 440-acre Conservancy. In addition approximately 200 acres of native prairie, invasive species control, and woodland restoration has been completed to date.  

Concordia University Bluff Management and Restoration

In 2012, ERC was commissioned by Concordia University in Mequon to assess erosional conditions, stormwater management, and vegetation on their 20-acre bluff restoration site along Lake Michigan.  ERC drafted an invasive species management plan and a vegetation management plan for the bluff site in 2014.  ERC was then commissioned to oversee Villani Landshapers to conduct a two-year project to re-establish native vegetation on several locations of the bluff.  Restoration work entailed overseeing up to three work crews implementing herbicide application, prescribed fire operation, woody and herbaceous invasive species management, hydro-seeding, erosion control product placement, and the installation of 18,000 native plants.  ERC is also responsible for ongoing monitoring of this project and is involved in planning additional phases of work.
