As we approach the halfway point of 2013 I figured it was time for another update. We’ve had an amazing first five months in business and the future just keeps getting brighter and brighter.
One month ago we landed our first project working with an international organization, the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC). BECC’s purpose is to “help preserve, protect and enhance the environment of the border region in order to advance the well-being of the people of the United States and Mexico”. This project takes us to the desert community of Palo Verde, in Imperial County, where the residents are trying to improve their quality of life by building a new waste water collection system and waste water treatment plant. We are providing environmental consulting services in the form of Burrowing Owl surveys, Southwestern Willow Flycatcher habitat mitigation plan assistance, and mitigation measure recommendations to protect sensitive fish in the nearby Colorado River and it’s associated waters. Talk about an awesome project!!! It has been great to get back in the desert and work with some amazing creatures, and also work hand-in-hand with a great organization that truly values the co-existence of humans and wildlife. This has been, and continues to be, a very rewarding project.
Blackhawk continues to grow and build a very healthy client base. We are approached on an almost daily basis to provide services or to team in order to procure future work. Even as we grow, we have maintained our bearing and stay true to our core belief of doing the hard right over the easy wrong. I want to thank you all for your continued support and I wish you nothing but success in the second half of this already fantastic year.
