Mitigation Banking


Mitigation banks for wetlands and conservation banks for protected species are habitats with documented resource values that are authorized to sell mitigation/conservation credits to developers and others obligated to offset environmental impacts from their projects or operations.  Developing a mitigation bank or a conservation bank and getting it approved is a process that involves meticulous attention to detail, negotiation with a consortium of regulatory agencies, and the willingness of the mitigation site owner to place the property in a conservation easement that requires in-perpetuity use of the property for conservation purposes.


HBG has obtained approval for banks currently selling mitigation credits for wetlands and special status species, and is involved in their management and operation.
