Plant Rescues

The Fox Valley Area Chapter organizes and carries out occasional plant rescues to save native plants that would otherwise be destroyed by construction or other changes in land use. Plant rescues are performed with the permission of the land owner, and in accordance with a set of policies and procedures established by the Chapter.  Only members are allowed to participate.

The Dig Chair Coordinator guides and directs all rescue dig activities with the assistance of county dig chairs:  Donna VanBuecken (920) 730-3986
