About Us

We are one of the newer chapters in Illinois; chartered by the National Wild Ones in 2010. For more about our past activities, read our history documentation (pdf).

Our chapter’s primary goal is to provide opportunities to share information about native Central Illinois prairie and woodland plants. We sponsor monthly programs that cover the multiple aspects of growing native plants such as identifying species, landscaping design, and plant selection. All programs and meetings are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Consult our by-laws for more information about our different officer and committee responsibilities.
