At Albion we aim to provide the highest-quality cultural and natural resource consulting services. Our organization is dedicated to excellence by serving our clients faithfully, efficiently, and competently.
Our purpose is to guide clients through federal, state, and local environmental regulatory requirements. We consult with agencies and developers about the impacts of projects on cultural and natural resources. We conduct scientific field studies (inventories and significance assessments) and create mitigation plans to manage project impacts. We implement mitigation measures (compliance monitoring, data recovery, public interpretation) to ensure that our clients are compliant with environmental laws and regulations and that their projects are successful.
Albion shares society’s respect and value for our nation’s cultural and natural resources. We aim to foster an appreciation of cultural and biological diversity. Through education and thoughtful management of heritage and ecosystems, we promote preservation and conservation. We believe that understanding the past and our environment contributes to a world where sustainability and diversity are respected.
The things that set Albion apart are excellent client service, experience, integrity, and unique business status. Albion’s Principals have direct involvement in projects, are available to clients, and can help clients negotiate successful outcomes. Our enthusiastic staff is technically and academically trained. Our team consists of prehistoric archaeologists, historical archaeologists, anthropologists, and wildlife experts, with a focus in ornithology. Albion provides clients with realistic budgets, makes defensible decisions, and is known in the regulatory and scientific community for doing good work. We are a women-owned small business, have 20 years of experience, and are dedicated exclusively to the management of California’s cultural and natural resources. You will be working with a dynamic and innovative team of environmental specialists.
We believe that excellent client service and professional satisfaction for our people will lead to the enhanced reputation and financial success of our firm. We believe financial success will come through accomplishment of our vision and is not the vision itself.
