Wild Ones promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities. Wild Ones is a national not-for-profit environmental education and advocacy organization.
I am co-president of Northern Kane County Wild Ones in Illinois at www.for-wild.org/chapters/kane. There are 50 chapters nationally, most of them in the Midwest–6 in Illinois, 1 in Indiana, 12 in Michigan, 11 in Wisconsin. The national organization is based in Appleton, Wisconsin; their e-mail address is www.for-wild.org.
I encourage everyone who is interested in native plants to join a local Wild Ones group. or if there isn’t one in your area, to form a new one. I would love to receive comments from those of you who are already members.
