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.
