Prairie Soil Consulting, LLC is a soil mapping and consulting company formed in 2006 by C.J. Heidt and Mike Ulmer, Professional Soil Classifiers registered in North Dakota. We specialize in high-intensity soil surveys, wetland and hydric soil determination, sedimentation studies, ordinary high water mark determinations, and septic field site evaluations.

We work independently -- or as part of an interdisciplinary team. We have access to other specialists as project needs require (e.g. additional Registered Professional Soil Classifiers, Engineers, Biologists, Botanists, GIS and GPS Specialists) and have provided timely soil expertise to many other consulting firms and specialists.  


Here are a few examples...

Large Endowment Approach

We are Professional Soil Classifiers registered in the State of North Dakota.  We are Certified Professional Soil Scientists/Soil Classifiers by ARCPACS (the Federation of Certifying Boards in Agriculture, Biology, Earth and Environmental Sciences).  We are Certified Professional Wetland Scientists by the Society of Wetland Scientists.
