Welcome to Northern Kane County Wild Ones

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 us on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00 PM at Christ the Lord Lutheran Church, 12N462 Tina Trail, Elgin, to hear Joe Cavataio educate and amaze with his extensive knowledge of the Chicago area’s frogs, toads and salamanders, their history and the need for their conservation. Joe is a lifelong naturalist with a focus on herpetology urban areas. This meeting is perfectly timed as they will be emerging in our long-awaited spring weather.
