CASE, Luby Equipment Support Team Rubicon in Training/Prairie Mitigation Project

CASE Construction Equipment, and heavy equipment dealer Luby Equipment, provided training support and donated the use of skid steers, compact track loaders and excavators to Team Rubicon for a combination training/service project in Van Buren County, Iowa. “Operation Forgotten Villages” performed prairie mitigation and long-term trail recovery work in Bentonsport, Iowa, designed to remove invasive growth and return the prairie to native grasses in support of local wildlife.

Team Rubicon volunteers cleared 14 acres of trees, and more than 20,000 cubic feet of invasive vegetation, to return the prairie back to its natural state. The effort is estimated to have saved the local community more than $60,000, and gave Team Rubicon heavy equipment operators valuable stick time to train for disasters, such as Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael.
