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.

Wild Ones’ has just launched its Native Garden Design website, featuring a several downloadable native garden plans created by professional landscape designers. The plans are free, printable, and come with plant lists.
