What do we do?

Wetland Mitigation Banking Specialists focuses on the identification, development, and preservation of Wetlands.

WMBS partners with Land Owners who maintain adequate water rights, in developing 'Wetland Mitigation Banks'. All associated costs, other than the land, are sponsored by WMBS.

Once a wetland mitigation bank has been established, credits are sold publicly to any entity needing mitigation credits. This is to facilitate a "No Net Loss" of wetlands, in accordance with Section 404 of the 'Clean Water Act' (see the link below 'What are Mitigation Banks?'). These earnings are distributed to both WMBS and the Landowner, which can result in a very profitable venture for all parties involved.
