Effective. Professional. Experienced.

Mission Clay is a former clay quarry in Niles Canyon on the eastern edge of the City of Fremont adjacent to Alameda Creek.  The site, which is set for reclamation work by Mission Clay Properties, our client, has a variety of natural, semi-natural and quarry wetland habitats with the potential for California red-legged frog (Rana draytonii; CRF) use.  Critical habitat was only about a mile from the site.  A CRF assessment was submitted to the USFWS to evaluate the site for CRF use and to obtain permission to conduct surveys.  The surveys were completed in both the breeding and on-breeding season.  In this case, no CRF were observed making the remaining reclamation work simpler to complete.
