Our sale was a big success! Thanks to the many gardeners who visited our shop, hundreds of native plants are now bringing life to Keweenaw yards. Stay tuned; we’re coming to farmers’ markets, and we’ll have a second sale in September

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.

Now available on Youtube: Two Keweenaw Native Plant Symposium Talks

If you missed the April 30 symposium, you can still catch up on a couple of great presentations.

Botanist-photographer Carolyn Miller shares dozens of photos of wildflowers in “Michigan Native Plants: From their Habitat to My Home.”

Michelle Wietek-Stephens reveals the ups and downs of starting a nursery from scratch in her very entertaining “A Watched Seed Never Sprouts: Adventures in Starting a Native Plant Nursery in the U.P.”
