Additional programs for members-only include field trips, regional hikes, visits to members’ gardens (“Landscapes in Progress”), social events and meetings.

 


 

MPGC-Logo-4c-425x425Be part of the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge which was developed in conjunction with the White House’s National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators by registering your garden.  Or, if you’re already registered with Wild Ones Native Plant Garden/Habitat Program, you’ll automatically be registered.

 

 

NPGN-Logo-4c-2-425x156Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food eaten each day, but their presence is declining due to lack of habitat. Providing native landscaping in our yards and municipal green spaces will increase more nectar and pollen sources. Providing native flowering plants and trees will help improve the health and numbers of native pollinators — bees, butterflies, birds, bats and many others across the country.

 


 

WILD ONES: NATIVE PLANTS. NATURAL LANDSCAPES is a national non-profit organization with over 50 chapters in 15 states that promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.
