Kyle Ashmun

Kyle is a water resources specialist with a focus in ecosystem restoration design and construction. He has a diverse background and versatile skill set which began with ecological consulting that primarily focused on wetland delineations and permitting. Over the last several years, Kyle has expanded his focus to include stream and wetland assessment and design, mitigation banking, and construction oversight.

In addition to his project experience, Kyle’s specific interests and passions lie in geomorphic assessments, land-and-water-based topographic surveying, GIS and GPS remote sensing, hydrologic analysis using GIS, hydraulic modeling, and construction oversight.  One of his primary career goals is to progress the restoration design field and bridge the gap between it and implementation / construction through practice-based research and applied science.

Kyle is involved with many aspects of Ecosystem Services’ work, applying his knowledge to a variety of project phases, including overall project management, geomorphic assessments, topographic survey, remote sensing and mapping, hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, restoration design, and construction management and monitoring.
