Welcome to Wild Ones of Northern Kane County

The Northern Kane County Illinois Chapter of Wild Ones was founded in 2009 as a chapter of Wild Ones.  We  are committed to promoting the use of native plants in landscaping, gardening, naturescaping and land restoration. Wild Ones is a not-for-profit environmental education and advocacy organization.

The mission of Wild Ones is to promote native plants, natural landscapes, and environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.  Wild Ones continues to lead the natural landscaping movement as we explore, teach, and change the practice of gardening in our communities and around the country to using native plants.  

Please join Northern Kane County Wild Ones for a behind-the-scenes tour at Midwest Natural Gardens nursery on Saturday, September 23 at 10:00 am.   

Jackie Pfaff will lead our tour of this property that has been a valuable resource for native plants in the past AND continues thanks to Midwest Groundcovers.  It is the source of the Natural Garden Natives sold at our annual plant sale.  The tour includes a walk through some history, production practices and site development.
