About the Company

Scott Spooner is the founder and Principal Wetland and Wildlife Ecologist of Wetlands & Wildlife, Inc. He grew up in Cody, Wyoming (located just outside of Yellowstone National Park) and attended the University of Montana where he graduated with a degree in Wildlife Biology. Scott has 20 years of experience completing natural resource assessments among many different ecosystems across the western United States.  Scott was previously employed by the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services (DDES) as a Senior Ecologist and the Snohomish County Planning and Development Services (PDS) as a Regulatory Biologist for a period of 5 years prior to starting Wetlands & Wildlife, Inc. In those positions, he specialized in review of proposed land use and building development permit applications as they pertain to Critical Areas (wetlands, rivers, streams, lakes, and habitats of protected fish and wildlife species). He has worked for the federal, state, and local county governments, as well as multiple environmental consulting firms in the Puget Sound region.

Scott is a certified wetland delineator and is highly experienced with the required U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Washington state wetland delineation methods. In addition to the wetland delineation certification, he is trained by the Washington Department of Ecology and is experienced in the use of the required Wetland Rating Form for western Washington. Scott is certified through the Washington Department of Ecology to determine Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) locations for rivers, streams, and lakes. He also received certifications by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for wildlife surveys of threatened and endangered species in Washington, and has many years of experience conducting surveys of special status wildlife species in the western U.S.

Over the past 20 years, Scott has evaluated literally over 1,600 different properties with many habitat types and zoning designations, from small, urban properties (0.25 acres) to large, rural properties (up to 2,000 acres in size). Due to his years of experience working for different agencies/companies, Scott has many local professional contacts and is able to effectively interact with all required environmental personnel to gain information on behalf of his clients.
Wetlands & Wildlife maintains solid relationships with other quality professionals that may assist our clients with their desired project goals. We would be happy to refer you to some of our qualified professional contacts if your project requires expertise from an engineer, surveyor, architect, septic designer, geologist, native plant nursery, landscaper for installing mitigation plans, etc.
