Welcome to Wild Ones: Illinois Prairie Chapter

Please note: Due to technical issues with the National Wild Ones website (wildones.org), some links on our chapter website that link to the National website may not be currently functional.  Please email us at ilprairiewo@gmail.com if there are questions we might be able to answer for you.

The chapter advocates for the use of plants native to Central Illinois in both urban and rural landscaping. It provides information to the public about the multiple benefits of native plants and the various aspects of growing them (such as identifying species, landscaping design, and plant selection). We share information through our monthly programming (click on the Programs tab above to learn about past and upcoming monthly programs) and other activities in support of the National Wild Ones Mission and Vision. We invite you to join Wild Ones or donate to support its many causes. To learn about the benefits of becoming a Wild Ones member please visit our Membership page.
