With increasing awareness of the valuable role prairies and savannahs play in the natural world, prairie and savannah communities throughout the Midwest are being identified, protected, and restored. People restore and maintain prairies and savannahs for many reasons, including weed management, reduced runoff, soil erosion control, wildlife habitats, and aesthetic appeal.
Prairies in North America were once vast grasslands that covered 200 million acres. Today, less than one percent of the native habitat is left. Williams Creek Management works to deliver contracting expertise for the restoration and preservation of our prairies and savannahs.
Williams Creek provided specialty installation services at Mulberry Fields Park in Zionsville, Indiana. Re-establishing the site by planting a new prairie or savannah involved strategic planning, including assessing important site characteristics and assembling required materials for the long-term success of the project.
