Prairie Legacy Inc. shares our clients’ concern for natural habitat. We strive to preserve remnant natural communities and restore and sustain native plant communities by providing excellent botanical and environmental consulting services. To serve clients seeking plants and seed, our mission is to increase availability of high quality, native, local ecotype plant material, providing the best possible habitat for local flora and fauna.
The team of experts at Prairie Legacy Inc. offer a combined 40 years of professional botanical and biological survey experience in wetlands, woodlands, tallgrass, mixed grass, and Sandhills prairie. We have provided prairie restoration and management advice for 10 years. We are eager to share our passion and knowledge with others by giving public presentations and classes as well.
Our inventory includes more than 200 species of native perennials, trees and shrubs, and seed for habitat restoration and landscapes. When possible, our native plant selections are grown from locally collected and genetically adapted seed with minimal inputs. Native plants provide habitat for native pollinators whose populations have been declining, such as butterflies and bees. Those who purchase our plants help protect the natural diversity of our planet.
The plants are grown on the family farm, which was settled by our ancestors, and we work to protect the local native prairie and woodland and to pass on the passion for preservation of small family farms and our tallgrass prairie legacy.
