Our Story

Parr Excellence was founded on the principle that it is essential to spend habitat restoration funds optimally. In these times of declining populations and loss of biodiversity, it is necessary for restoration professionals to operate in triage mode. There is no time to waste. We are committed to working diligently to reverse the trends of decline and dedicate productive habitats for future generations.

Parr Excellence was created by, Bill Norris, P.E. and Rich Phaneuf, who worked together at another consulting firm for nearly 23 years. Our company name, Parr Excellence, acknowledges that our careers have been committed to increasing survival rates of juvenile salmonids. Parr Excellence is dedicated to designing a habitat that will deliver vigorous smolts to our estuaries with the expectancy of more redds for future generations.
