Recently, Third Rock was retained to assist with invasive species management on a stream and wetland mitigation site in Central Kentucky. The restoration efforts included herbicide application, invasive vegetation removal, seed bed preparation, native seed planting, and erosion blanket installation.
Did you know that Third Rock's Chelsey Olson is an FAA certified drone pilot? He's passed the Unmanned Aircraft General-Small exam and has obtained a remote pilot certificate under FAA Part 107, enabling him to legally fly for business purposes. In addition to drone services, Chelsey is a federally-permitted biologist and a professional photographer, making him a valued member of the Third Rock team.
Third Rock ecologists have extensive experience conducting fish surveys across Kentucky and the Southeast. Depending on the size of the stream, fish are sampled using a variety of electrofishing and seining methods. Above is an image from our recent survey near Louisville, Kentucky.
