Mitigation Banking and Stewardship

GTA serves as the Bank Sponsor for the first federal agency Umbrella Mitigation Banking Instrument in Maryland, completed for the United States Air Force. We provide expertise in mitigation design, permitting, and construction supervision. We also hold mitigation sites and easements, managing them as the long-term steward. We have experience in setting up and working with long-term stewardship, endowment, and catastrophic event funds that support high quality stewardship or preserved lands, including completed mitigation banks and sites.

The PCMS is situated on a 63-acre portion of the larger Walton Foundation property (126 acres) that is adjacent to and within the 100-year floodplain of Piscataway Creek, which flows through the property from northwest to southeast.

This 386-acre project site in North Carolina restored the site’s former hydrology and forest vegetation. These restored forested wetlands now provide a significant improvement to the water quality, biodiversity and habitat of this degraded section of the Middle Neuse River Watershed.
