Wild Ones   Wild Ones© Chapters  

Organizing a Wild Ones chapter is a great way to get together with friendly, knowledgeable people who share your interest in native plants and natural landscaping.

To get a general idea of how to start a chapter in your area, read our New Chapter Basics. After that, you'll want to check out the more detailed Chapter Start-up Kit which includes everything you'll need to really get started.

Here you'll find step-by-step instructions for starting your chapter, how to plan your meetings, meeting topics, and how to find expert guest speakers for your meetings. We'll even provide you with sample press releases to help you spread the word about your new Wild Ones chapter.

The Chapter Start-up Kit gives you everything you'll need to get started, and our National Office will help you through any rough spots. Feel free to call the National Office, toll-free, 877-394-9453, any time for more ideas, encouragement, and answers to anything you're not quite sure about.
