About Us

We are one of the newest chapters in Illinois; chartered by the National Wild Ones in 2010. For more about our past activities, read our history documentation (pdf). Visit the past meeting and events page for a history of what the chapter has hosted and planned.

Our 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, controlled burning, landscaping designs, and plant selection. All programs and meetings are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
