Native Plants Education

Wild Ones of the Door Peninsula is a chapter of a national organization dedicated to “promoting environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.” 

To further its mission, Wild Ones is hosting two public programs.

On Sept. 18, 4 pm, enjoy the autumn beauty of two prairie gardens during a tour at the home of Mark and Michaela Holey and the adjacent YMCA Peterson Park Prairie Garden, 410 19th St. in Sturgeon Bay. The Holeys will explain why and how they’ve “gone wild” in their yard and are helping the YMCA to share native plants with the community.

On Sept. 19, 4 pm, the Wild Ones Chapter will revive its monthly lecture series with the illustrated talk “Native Plants Are for the Birds” at Crossroads at Big Creek, 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay. Naturalist Coggin Heeringa will help participants select native plants that will attract birds to visit throughout the year and to nest on their property during breeding season.
