25th Toward Harmony with Nature Conference

This year's conference is being held at the Oshkosh Convention Center, 2 North Main Street on Saturday, January 29, 2022 and on a virtual platform throughout the day.

Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter is celebrating its 25th Toward Harmony with Nature all-day conference on natural landscapes, native plants and biodiversity this January 29, 2022. Nature’s Best Hope featuring Dr. Doug Tallamy is a practical blueprint for a new approach to conservation that starts in our yards. By adopting a new relationship with nature, we can save the natural world - and thus ourselves. What our speakers have to say should be of interest to anyone (homeowners, gardeners, landscapers, teachers, ecologists, municipal leaders, wildlife enthusiasts, nursery owners, etc).

Want to learn more about native landscaping and the positive effect it has on our ecosystems and our general health? Join us in learning from our speakers how we can apply their lessons toward creating a healthy habitat in our gardens and our own yards.

Attend in person or virtually. There will be NO WALK-IN registrations the day of the conference.

In-Person - Registration opens on November 15, 2021 to January 12, 2022 . This year, the in person conference has a maximum capacity of 244 attendees.
