Welcome to Wild Ones!

Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes . . . promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.

Our Wild Ones chapter is dedicated to educating and advocating for biodiversity in the Tennessee Valley.  We offer a variety of programs and events throughout the year that teach sustainable landscaping practices using plants that are native to our region.  We invite you to attend our programs and to become a member!



Update on 3/17/2020
At this time, upcoming public programs for the Tennessee Valley Chapter of Wild Ones are on hold, pending new recommendations from the CDC and the Hamilton County Health Department.  We hope to have additional information posted on this page in the near future.
In the meantime, please take advantage of the resources offered on this website, particularly under the “Planting Information” tab.    There, you will find downloadable documents and brochures to help you plan your own native plant garden.  Also available are lists of plants that are native to the Tennessee Valley, including the Chattanooga area, north Georgia and north Alabama.  Take advantage of this time to decide what steps YOU can take to “help heal the earth, one garden at a time.”
Stay healthy… we look forward to seeing you soon!
