Are you familiar with Wild Ones? It’s a “national, not-for-profit environmental education and advocacy organization” founded in Milwaukee, WI, in 1979. There are 50 chapters in 13 states—six in Minnesota, including two in the Twin Cities area—that are devoted to native plants and natural landscapes. http://www.wildonestwincities.org http://www.wildones.org/chapters/scos/
The Design With Nature Annual Conference takes place Saturday, March 1, 2013, at the Plymouth Creek Center in Plymouth, MN. Four excellent speakers will make presentations throughout the day. In between the seminars, I will be among a dozen exhibitors as I show and have for sale prints and note cards of native plants. I look forward to seeing you there.
