Welcome to the Wild Ones Keweenaw Chapter

We are on a journey to

  • educate ourselves and others about the special attributes of native plants and how to incorporate them into our gardens and civic landscapes;
  • create habitat that nurtures wildlife, including bees, butterflies, and birds; and
  • develop resilient landscapes that absorb runoff, protecting water quality and infrastructure.

Regular meetings are held at 6:15 p.m., the third Tuesday of the month, on Zoom.

Coming Feb. 7
Don’t Plant That, Plant This: A Guide to Choosing Better Garden Plants and Avoiding the Troublemakers
 by Dr. Sigrid Resh

Many of the invasive exotic plants wreaking havoc in nature got their start in our gardens, and plenty of those bad boys are for sale in nurseries yet today. Dr. Sigrid Resh, coordinator of the Keweenaw Invasive Species Management Area (KISMA), will point out some of the troublemakers and suggest native alternatives that will add beauty to your garden and help sustain wildlife.

This Zoom presentation begins at 6 p.m., Monday, Feb. 7. Click here to register.
