Prairie Oaks is a 34-acre reserve established in 1996. We are dedicated to becoming stewards of native prairie, oak savanna, woodland, and wetland in LeClaire, Iowa. We acknowledge that this land is Meskwaki and Sauk land. We acknowledge the history of genocide, displacement, mass exploitation, and Indigenous erasure that has taken place and continues to take place. We advocate for land back initiatives, Indigenous sovereignty, and the decolonization of agriculture across the Midwest. To learn more, please support & visit Great Plains Action Society and read this publication: End Stage Iowa: Big-Ag’s Sacrifice Zone and Indigenous Resistance.
We learn something new every day about the complexity and diversity of the native ecology, and we aim to conserve and encourage the growth of the native species that call this place home. If you’re interested in working with us, feel free to contact us!
