Who Are We?
Goshawk Environmental Consulting, Inc. incorporated in March 2005. Zane N. Homesley founded the company after he had spent the previous 10+ years in the environmental consulting business working for various private environmental and engineering companies. Goshawk’s objective is to provide a variety of environmental consulting services in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner, while attempting to conserve the natural resources to the maximum extent practicable. When impacts are necessitated by a project, Goshawk strives to meet the needs of the client while keeping the proposed project in compliance with federal, state, and/or local environmental regulations. Goshawk is fully-insured under general liability, automobile liability, Errors and Omissions (E&O), and workers’ compensation policies tailored to environmental consulting services.
Goshawk is a small firm without all the huge overhead typically reflected on most invoices. This allows us to tailor our services to your needs. There is no minimum charge because we think there is no job too small, yet we can handle the most complex of situations too. You get personal service from someone who is a part of your team.
Why the Name “Goshawk”?
When Zane decided to start his consulting business, it was obvious that his hobby of bird-watching would factor into the naming. Both of his children have been named using “bird” terminology; his son Talon and daughter Raven. So the business name had to stay within the same theme.
Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) - Accipiter means “bird of
prey” and gentilis means “noble”. The goshawk is considered
to be one of the most acrobatic fliers and fiercest predators. It has been
described as fearless! Since Zane had to be fearless to drop his secure
job to pursue his dream and he believed his business should be conducted
in a noble fashion, the name of the business was established as Goshawk
