Landmark welcomes new associate: Amy Nazdrowicz
New Castle, DE — Ted Williams, president of Landmark Science & Engineering, one of the region’s largest consulting civil engineering, environmental and land surveying firms, announced that environmental scientist Amy Nazdrowicz, who specializes in wetlands, habitat management, and wildlife investigations, has been named as an associate of the firm and will lead the Natural Sciences and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) groups. Amy has 10 years of experience with the firm, having worked the first three years with a regional environmental firm that merged with Landmark in 2009.
Amy Nazdrowicz earned a Masters of Science degree in Wildlife Ecology at University of Delaware and a Bachelors of Science in Environmental and Forest Biology from S.U.N.Y. Environmental Science and Forestry. She is certified in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania as a “Recognized Qualified Bog Turtle Surveyor,” a rare distinction where there are only a couple of resident Delaware professionals that can lead Phase I and Phase II bog turtle investigations. She is an expert on evaluating the effects of wetland amendments on the biodiversity of constructed wetlands, and her research has been published in Biological Conservation and in Restoration Ecology. Nazdrowicz has conducted a number of professional scientific seminars and environmental educational programs on topics including wetland creation, wetland diversity, native plants, landscape ecology, and herpetology. Keith Rudy, P.E., a principal and Director of Science and Water Resources said “Amy’s wealth of environmental experience and knowledge, combined with a strong drive to succeed in all that she does, has made her a valuable asset to our Sciences Department and we look forward to her leadership. As a certified Bog Turtle Surveyor, she can help land development clients avoid up to a year-long delay by getting their Phase II surveys scheduled before April 15 each year.”
