Wildlands is developing this full-delivery project on the 75-acre Owl’s Den Farm, where blackberries are the primary production crop. The project will provide 2,400 stream mitigation units and 8.0 wetland mitigation units for the NC Division of Mitigation Services. The project includes existing site assessment, conservation easement acquisition, permitting, stream restoration design, construction, and seven years of post-construction monitoring of geomorphic stability and vegetation. Detailed hydrologic modeling was completed to study wetland-groundwater connections and assist with design development. Construction was completed in July 2015 and planted in fall 2015. The project is currently in the monitoring phase.
