Who We Are

Native Environment Solutions

At Native Environment Solutions (NES), we are a third-party external and environmental affairs consulting firm dedicated to fostering sustainable development practices that honor and preserve the integrity of both cultural and natural resources. Established in 2023 by Erick Robinson and Hayley Rambur, NES is rooted in a deep commitment to supporting Tribal Governments, Natural Resource Developers, and Federal/State Agencies through a comprehensive range of services designed to navigate the complexities of cultural and natural resource management.

Our Mission

Our core mission is to provide technical support and advisory services that facilitate sustainable natural resource development. We prioritize projects and initiatives that respect and engage with Tribal Governments and Communities. We give employment preference to Tribal citizens and members of local communities so their respective values can be inherently involved in each project we undertake. 

What We Do

Our expertise spans a broad spectrum of services tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients. These include but are not limited to:

Cultural & Natural Resource-Focused Work

We specialize in integrating cultural and natural resource considerations into every aspect of our projects because culture and nature are inseparable in Native communities.

Field Methods & Technical Reports

Our team employs state-of-the-art minimally-invasive and high-precision field methods to collect data and produce comprehensive technical reports that guide decision-making processes.

Tribal Relationship Advisement, Third-Party Mediation, and Conflict Resolution

Our deep understanding of Native cultures and Tribal Government legal frameworks allows us to provide invaluable advice, third-party mediation, and conflict resolution services. These services enable clients to build sustainable relationships that avoid disputes and navigate challenges effectively.

Engagement Support & NEPA Support

NES is equipped to offer engagement support and assistance with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance, ensuring projects proceed in an environmentally responsible manner.

Why We Do It

At NES, we believe that the path to sustainable development and effective environmental management is forged through deep collaboration with Tribal communities. Our mission is to enhance the capabilities of these communities, appreciating their crucial role in safeguarding cultural heritage and responsibly harnessing natural resources. Our approach to every project is shaped by a commitment to nurturing relationships that are mutually beneficial, sustainable, and respectful, aiming to balance cultural preservation with smart natural resource development for the well-being of future generations.

Unlike typical Cultural Resource Management (CRM) firms, NES offers a unique, all-encompassing suite of services that extend beyond traditional engagement to encompass technical support and external affairs programs and teams. We stand apart by actively involving Tribal members – Cultural Specialists and Cultural Technicians – in leading and executing our field projects. This unique collaboration ensures our projects are not only led but informed by the very communities they impact.

Our Difference

Our Commitment

Since 2023, NES has been steadfast in our commitment to improving and sustaining Tribal relationships. Our dedication to our mission has guided us through every project, driving our efforts to ensure that development and conservation efforts go hand in hand with respect and recognition for Tribal sovereignty and cultural heritage.
