Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (September 13, 2021) – Wild Ones of the Door Peninsula is a chapter of a national organization dedicated “Promoting environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration, and establishment of native plant communities. They invite the public to learn about native plants at two public programs this week.
On Saturday, September 18, at 4:00, Wild Ones will share autumn beauty of two prairie gardens during a Garden Tour at the home of Mark and Michaela Holey and the adjacent YMCA Peterson Park Prairie Garden, at 410 19th St, Sturgeon Bay, WI. The Holeys will explain why and how they have “gone wild” in their own yard and now helping the YMCA share native plants with the community.
On Sunday, September 19 at 4:00, at Crossroads, the Wild Ones Chapter will revive their monthly Lecture Series with the illustrated talk “Native Plants Are For the Birds” that should help you select native plants which will encourage birds to visit your yard or property throughout the year and to nest in your yard during breeding season. What you plant will truly make a difference. Naturalist Coggin Heeringa, representing Wild Ones of the Door Peninsula, will be the speaker. Free and open to the public. Lecture Hall of the Collins Learning Center, 2041 Michigan St., Sturgeon Bay. Masks recommended.
