Common Ground Capital

Common Ground Capital helps landowners work with the conservation mitigation credit market.  They work to improve the selection and reliability of Landscape-scale conservation projects to protect the Lesser Prairie Chicken and other species.

Wayne Walker and his dedicated biologist, landman, and other technicians have scoured the Southern Plains for the finest habitat and the most willing landowners across the five-state range of the LPC.

Common Ground has received approval of the first programmatic landscape scale conservation bank agreement in the US for Lesser Prairie Chicken.  All regulatory approvals occurred under the authority of the United States Fish & Wildlife Service.

Common Ground through the American Burying Beetle Conservation Bank LLC partnership with WLLL, LLC of Tyler, Texas has closed  a customer specific project for the first ABB mitigation project under the new ABB mitigation rules in late 2012 and has received approval of a traditional conservation bank for ABB next door in February of 2014. 

To date Common Ground and its partners have 60,000 acres of land either already under contract or targeted for landscape scale conservation to serve compensatory mitigation needs for developers under the Endangered Species Act.
