Earth Design Consultants, Inc. worked with the Shadowood Home Owner's Association to to develop a science-based conservation plan for their property. Shadowood is a planned development unit that has an 8 acre green way. This green way is located along a creek within the watershed of the Yamhill River, defined by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality as a Priority 2 watershed.
Earth Design Consultants, Inc. and the Conservation Biology Institute are developing a strategy to obtain funds from government and local stakeholders to develop a conservation plan that balances the needs of the residents for safety and maintenance with ecological needs. In addition to the conservation plan for the property, a Homeowner's Guide and a Monitoring Program are expected to be developed.
