Beacon Environmental has the planning, assessment and mapping expertise to complete natural heritage studies in areas ranging from thousands of hectares to less than one. With staff able to complete assessments for water quality, fisheries, vegetation, birds, herpetofauna and mammals, we can assemble teams to suit any project's needs. We also collaborate with associate firms or individuals with expertise in planning, engineering, hydrogeology, fluvial geomorphology, archaeology, and landscape architecture, as required.

Beacon has the capacity to electrofish in shallow and white water conditions with its sturdy and manoevrable CataRaft which provides power capabilities for sampling in both lake and riverine systems which cannot be sampled using backpack units or larger electrofishing boats.
