Native Prairie & Grassland Restoration

We are dedicated to restoring past grasslands to the highly diversified native prairies they once were. Farmers, ranchers, landowners and others are converting their historical grasslands back to natural prairies. Prairies once comprised the largest biome in North America and the diversity of life found there may harbor new fuels, foods, medicines and other products as yet undiscovered. We have the latest training and techniques to achieve a successful restoration project. We will provide plant stock and seeds that originated from species within a very close geographic range of your restoration project.  We can monitor and maintain prairie restoration projects to ensure their survival and success. We practice ecologically sound techniques with proven success in controlling invasive species.
