Mitigation Futures Conservancy was formed by environmental professionals that have observed the redistribution of valuable resources from within the overall landscape to large-scale mitigation sites over the last ten years. Mitigation Futures Conservancy is staffed purely by volunteer environmental professionals, all with extensive experience throughout the Texas ecosystems.
Our Focus – Is to assist developers with small mitigation sites to provide long term monitoring and protection, which benefits the economics of area through development, as well as maintaining and enhancing small pockets of urban wildlife and water quality areas. Mitigation Futures Conservancy was established by environmental professionals that realize the value of smaller mitigation sites. Small mitigation sites provide significant values to the overall ecosystem that cannot be forgotten. These small sites, although they usually provide reduced functions than that of a larger site, do provide incremental ecosystem functions to the ever diminishing naturally functioning systems. Our focus is to provide an opportunity for protection of these sites so that they will not be lost.
Our vision is to provide protection for mitigation sites throughout Texas, regardless of size. Our conservation easements can provide long-term protection for habitat, unique and rare plant communities or assemblages of plant communities, and mitigation sites. There are many types of mitigation sites and Mitigation Futures Conservancy works with the lead Federal and State agencies to provide the necessary long-term protection and monitoring to demonstrate that the mitigation site is maintaining the desired ecosystem functions.
