Michael LeBlanc and Tim Schwan, environmental managers at Gulf Western, started the new environmental division at the company earlier this year. Both men have environmental degrees from FGCU and have extensive backgrounds in environmental work from their jobs at the DEP and other agencies. The men want to help developers, both commercial and residential, protect the environment so places like this CREW site in eastern Bonita Springs always stays pristine.
These are some of the tools the men use as they look at the hydrological soil profile on parcels to perform wetland determinations.
Michael LeBlanc and Tim Schwan, environmental managers at Gulf Western, explore and examine local terrain as they gather information to create reports for clients on environmental concerns.

There could be wetlands or exotic vegetation. There can be endangered gopher tortoises or bonneted bats. There are so many things lurking on property that is set to be developed.  And with development now creeping further and further east, the need to balance countryside and concrete is even more critical.

That’s why Gulf Western, based in Bonita Springs, recently started a new environmental division. They hired experts Michael LeBlanc and Timothy Schwan to head the team helping both commercial and residential developers to secure permitting, while protecting the environment.

The men survey the property of clients, writing reports that can be used for permitting. If something is found on site, the men then help clients follow the steps laid out for them by the DEP and other environmental agencies. They work with everything from stormwater runoff, wetlands and mangroves to endangered and listed species and exotic vegetation. They work with individual homeowners, homeowner associations, commercial developers and marine industries.
