Greater DuPage Wild Ones

Wild Ones promotes the use of native plants to bring people and nature together in their yards.  Using natives in the landscape can add beauty and make the yard come alive.  Native plants are nature's birdfeeders, and specific native plants can provide butterflies with all their needs.  Seven chapters around Chicagoland to help you enjoy the beauty of, and learn the landscaping of large and small yards planted with these plants that easily tolerate our environment year-round.
