Native Plants, Natural Landscapes
Wild Ones is a non-profit environmental education and advocacy organization. They promote environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities. Wild Ones is a national membership organization with headquarters located in Wisconsin and chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
The Connecticut Mountain Laurel Chapter of Wild Ones, established in 2006 by Kathy Dame '90 and Nancy Livensparger, meets the second Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Olin Science Center on the campus of Connecticut College. It is closely affiliated with the Arboretum SALT program. Each month, after a brief business meeting, the group enjoys an activity related to the goals of the chapter. Visitors are welcome!
