“The lowland desert, the short grass plains, and pinion pines are not just a part of this region’s beauty; they support the biodiversity that sustains health, culture, economy, and well-being”
The office, formerly Natural Systems International (NSI), broadens the firm’s services to communities throughout the Southwestern Basin and Range, an area covering portions of Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and California. Focusing on rainwater harvesting, stormwater management, and natural wastewater treatment and reuse, Biohabitats provides holistic water management solutions that are fully integrated with habitat conservation, arid lands restoration and community regeneration.
“The lowland desert, the short grass plains, and pinion pines are not just a part of this region’s beauty; they support the biodiversity that sustains health, culture, economy, and well-being,” said Biohabitats president Keith Bowers. “We’re eager to help communities manage water and regenerate biodiversity while creating vibrant, resilient communities.”
The firm’s current and past projects include design of stormwater and rain harvesting infrastructure at a federal courthouse in Albuquerque, NM, a natural wastewater treatment and reuse system for a Desert Living Center in Las Vegas, NV and the development of low impact stormwater management improvements and arroyo restoration for a Campus Transformational Plan with the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).
To celebrate the expansion of its Southwest Basin and Range Bioregion office, the firm will host an open house October 30 from 4-7 at 3600 Cerrillos Road in Santa Fe.
Founded in 1982, Biohabitats works throughout the world to restore the earth and inspire ecological stewardship.
