About Us

As a planning and design firm with roots in the American west, we understand the power of creating real places that are true to the people who live here.

Our calling is to interpret the form and function of landscape in ways that are authentic to its place and cultural history.  We are resource-wise and down to earth. We advocate for our clients’ best interest within the natural systems of the place and love to roll up our sleeves to bring practical and intuitive solutions to life. We are stewards and storytellers. From railroads to ghost towns, ranchlands to downtowns, we bring together the ecology, history and collective knowledge of those who understand the place best.

 

Our story is best understood through three time periods.  Select an era below to learn more about our past and our people :
