WOFVA CHAPTER PLANT, TREE AND SHRUB SALE

The  WOFVA Chapter Plant Sale is over, and it was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and talent to help us offer this event again this year. Thanks to everyone who bought plants to add to the habitat so necessary to sustain our pollinators and a biodiverse environment.

For assistance in picking the perfect native plant to add to your plantings, see the Native Alternatives to Non-Natives.


Web Site Assistance

We are looking for a volunteer to serve on an ad-hoc  Web Site Committee to better define our web presence. The committee will probably meet once or twice.  We are considering  design changes and new features. If you are familiar with any of the following: communications, social media, education, website site OR website administration, please consider sharing your experience and ideas.



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’s beginning 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.

National Wild One headquarters is located at the WILD Center, in the heart of the Fox Valley.
