Wild Ones teaches people about the importance of native plants, for the health of the environment and everything living in it. Our goal is to get more native plants in the ground in all landscapes — homes, businesses, schools, and more. Our chapter’s membership primarily comes from St. Paul and surrounding communities in Minnesota.
