THE FUTURE OF OUR NATURAL RESOURCES DEPENDS ON GOOD MANAGEMENT CHOICES.


BUILDING UNDERSTANDING THROUGH SCIENCE

We can’t manage systems that we don’t understand. 2NDNATURE takes a unique, technically defensible approach to make science accessible and relevant. Improves decision makers’ ability to communicate, collaborate and allocate resources.

ISOLATING THE HUMAN SIGNAL

Inherent variability of natural systems makes it difficult to estimate resource impacts and mitigation benefits. We isolate the signal of land management practices from the noise in environmental data to ensure the outputs from our products are direct and comparable measures of effectiveness.

SOPHISTICATED SIMPLICITY

Our products are designed to be as simple as possible and only as complex as necessary. Our products empower local decision makers with cost-effective, informative data collection and user-friendly robust models.

POWERFUL PRODUCTS TO INFORM DECISIONS

Good water management requires objective and transparent ways to determine investment priorities and their environmental value. We combine the best science available, sound analytics, and software technology to reduce client costs and increase data consistency and usability.

We integrate broad technical capabilities to help decision makers prioritize expenditures & communicate effectiveness.
