Land Environmental was contracted to perform a Threatened & Endangered Species Survey and Phase I ESA for a power co-op on approximately 10 acres of land in Cheifland, Florida. Our staff reviewed the approximate property boundaries and aerial images prior to mobilizing to the site. Upon arrival, we determined the property boundaries and began our field survey. Portions of the property that were wooded were inspected in a grid-like fashion on foot. A driving tour was performed in the open, cleared portions of the property. Our staff flagged locations where we observed gopher tortoise burrows and used Global Positioning System (GPS) software to plot all locations. We produced a detailed assessment report for our client which was submitted to the USDA and FWC to document our work.
