  • Nevada, Iowa – Dick Van Deusen, a rural home and woodland owner, will be welcoming 250 Nevada,
    Iowa students in Central Elementary’s multiage program to his land on March 28 th and April 4 th to learn
    about managing natural resources. It is a private event, but members of the media are invited to attend.

    For more than 35 years, Dick has owned a home that overlooks Squaw Creek. Changes in vegetation,
    stream straightening, crop field tile drainage, and rainfall have resulted in critical soil erosion. Along with
    neighbor Dave Hughes, Dick contacted Luke Gran, owner of Prudenterra, a local ecosystem restoration
    business, to make a plan to better protect his home and their land from the cutting erosion taking place
    along Squaw Creek.
