"My experience with Lynch-Stewart & Associates Environmental Consultants has been very positive. I’ve engaged them to develop communications materials for programs related to species at risk and agri-environmental stewardship. In both cases, Pauline and her associates worked closely with us to clarify and refine the deliverables at each stage. They demonstrated a high level of competency and professionalism in the planning and execution of the projects. They also brought to bear subject matter expertise that enhanced the final products. In my experience, they offer a rare and valuable combination of strong people skills, project management expertise, and in-depth scientific knowledge and understanding."
