PART THREE: Wildlife Management Service Agreements
Plateau Service Agreements: Work Share
While the Plateau “hands-free” service agreement is our most well-known service agreement option, we know it doesn’t fit the needs of every landowner, which is why we offer additional options including the “work share” service agreement.
The “work share” landowner splits work & activities between Plateau and themselves. Landowners perform the activities they enjoy or want to complete to reduce costs, while Plateau handles specialized or tedious activities and documentation.
With help from Plateau, the landowner can review their plan and choose wildlife management activities he/she wants Plateau to complete from our list of services offered. Plateau performs the selected activities with professional service and full documentation/records for the annual report. The landowner performs and documents all remaining activities to meet their goals and maintain compliance.
For example, Plateau staff may install a water station or feeder on your property, maintain an updated GPS location and perform minor repairs, and you fill it as needed throughout the year.
Like the “hands-free” service agreement, the “work share” agreement is fully customizable and unique to the property and landowner. Most “work share” service agreements include an annual report and site monitoring visits. These two services provide support and peace of mind that the landowner is on track with his/her wildlife management activities.
With an annual report and site visits, wildlife services technicians are on the ground monitoring & cleaning nest boxes, checking/repairing any Plateau products, and documenting with photos and GPS coordinates. A Plateau annual report biologist checks in throughout the year to assess the progress of activities and send reminders about documentation to ensure compliance is met for each activity.
The “work share” service agreement landowner includes resident owners, retirees and any landowners working with a specific budget but still wanting a partner in wildlife management.
