I was asked recently, on behalf of Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter, to make a presentation to the Board of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation to help them make a decision around “supporting educational efforts for both urban and rural natural landscape practices.”
The presentation was to cover the mission of Wild Ones, the importance of native plants in landscapes, examples of what Wild Ones does, and examples of what people can do on their forest, wetland, grassland and mixed use properties to enhance and restore habitat.
I’m delighted to say the WWF Board voted to support educational efforts for both urban and rural natural landscape practices.
Following the presentation, the Board asked my chapter to make the presentation available to them for future reference. Here is that presentation Promoting a Living Landscape through Native Plants and Natural Landscapes.

Thanks for all you do to promote life on our land.

Thank you, Cheryl, for the atta boy! I do appreciate hearing from you. My parents instilled in us the idea of the Land Ethic. I wish everyone would buy-in to it. As I work with young people through the Hunter Safety program, I’m amazed by how many (typically all) do not know of Aldo Leopold.
