H. T. Harvey & Associates is a premier ecological consulting firm based in California and Hawaii. For over 40 years, H. T. Harvey & Associates has created ecologically sound solutions to our clients’ complex natural resource challenges.

We have an opening in our Fresno office for a Botany Project Manager with experience as a plant ecologist and botanist. The Botany Project Manager will conduct and direct field studies such as habitat mapping, rare plant surveys, and wetland assessments and delineations, and will prepare and process environmental impact analyses, resource agency permits, and mitigation feasibility studies.
