Two growing seasons after a city bridge project, demolished the buckthorn laden hillside, this third-of-an-acre urban lot in the old Third Ward, has a new native look. Join us for refreshments and conversation on the hillside over looking the Fox River and view some of the successes and challenges of going native on this steep slope in the heart of Appleton.
Wild petunia and other seedings to take home, plus door prizes.
Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to increase biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.
Wild Ones is a not-for-profit environmental education and advocacy organization.
Please join the mapping project by answering the questions about your property. Photos would be great, but are not necessary. Specific species information is optional.
Since our Chapter beginnings in 1994, Wild Ones Fox Valley Area (WOFVA) continues to celebrate and promote the use of native plants in home and civic landscaping. We lead the natural landscaping movement in exploring, teaching, and changing the practice of gardening to include the use of native plants. Join us in helping to restore our natural world.
Our Chapter, WOFVA, has its home in the national Wild One headquarters, at the WILD Center, in the heart of the Fox Valley.
