We help landowners create and manage thriving habitat
Restoring Iowa's Native Ecosystems



Plant native wildflowers and grasses for pollinators and songbirds. Reinvigorate your prairie with prescribed fire, mowing, and invasive species management.


Woodland Management

Manage your woodlands for wildlife habitat, recreation, and profit. Restore an oak savanna, plant a windbreak, remove invasive species, or grow an edible landscape.



Improve water quality and create habitat for turtles, frogs, dragonflies, and other wildlife. Restore a stream, construct a wetland, grow prairie strips, or plant cover crops.

Land Walks


Explore your land with an ecological interpreter. Define your vision, investigate new opportunities, and create a plan of action to meet your objectives.

“Luke and his crew are very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. They are also personable and easy to work with. From prescribed burns to woodland management, Prudenterra has been really good at helping me with the planning and figuring out what is possible, and then getting the work done.”
