Northern Ecological Services is a full-service restoration and land management company based in northeastern Minnesota. Our work includes project design, consultation, installation, and project maintenance. Our customers are a mix of public agencies, businesses, and private landowners. Projects range from residential landscapes and solar gardens to larger stream restorations and wetland management. Our field crews perform native plant landscaping, erosion control, reforestation, restoration, invasive species management, as well as a variety of other work. Seeding, planting, installing erosion control materials, using hand tools, operating small power equipment, and herbicide application are all common. The work can involve heavy lifting and often involves repetitive tasks. We work outside and weather can impact us, but we do work in adverse conditions. Difficult terrain, bugs, and other things you would expect to find outside are common. Project locations range across Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin, and some overnight travel is expected with the company providing hotels and a per diem. Typical hours are 7am-5pm Monday through Friday, but working outside of these hours as projects dictate is not uncommon. The field season usually runs from May through October with the beginning and end dates being dependent on weather and work load.
