Solid Ground Consulting Group

Our services are designed to both solve problems and build capacity. We teach as we work, learn as we go, and work hand-in-hand with our clients to make their organizations stronger and more capable. We provide consulting services that help support fundamental transformation, helping organizations and key programs move “to the next level.” We specialize in the big projects – opportunities and challenges that lay it all on the line and have to be done right. We also take on the smaller projects that require exactly the right person to help make a difference.

Conservation Planning 

Defining the proactive and responsive programs that best meet the challenge of perpetual land protection.

  • We help groups access, interpret, and apply detailed data in support of proactive conservation planning.
  • We provide tools and resources to help groups engage their constituents and bring them into the conservation planning process, ensuring that their conservation plan has a healthy balance of qualitative and quantitative information. Perhaps most importantly, these plans have strong community buy-in.
