This three-part initiative will get you excited about growing native and prep you for the adventure ahead. Events include
- A March 23 Zoom talk with naturalist and media personality David Mizejewski, author of “Attracting Birds, Butterflies, and Other Backyard Wildlife,” part of the Keweenaw Native Plant Symposium
- An April book club featuring David’s book, now available at a reduced cost from Keweenaw Wild Ones
- “Why Natives?,” a March 6 talk by Keweenaw Wild Ones president Marcia Goodrich, at the Calumet Public Library
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 6:30 p.m., the third Tuesday of the month, alternating on Zoom and in person.
