Notes From the Chapter Board In These Strange Times

These are strange times, and we are adjusting, as you no doubt are. We have no idea when life will get back to what we knew, if in fact it will. As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, we are watching, and will make changes accordingly. We will be following the recommendations of Wild Ones’ National Office to cancel events as a reasonable precaution, or live-stream, when possible. The safety of our members and the public is our primary concern.

In an attempt to be optimistic, we hope that by this summer we are back to having events where we will be in need of the following things: a 6′ or 8′ long foldable table, a tent/canopy and weights, for our table and displays: a dolly or cart to help us transport our table and displays. If you can help the Board source any of these items, we would be ever so grateful! Please contact us.

We have also heard from some of you that this might be a tough time, financially, to go out and buy plants. So, are there Wild Ones’ members or supporters who have native plants they are willing to divide and share? Or, are there some of you who are propagating plants, and have some to give away? Please contact us if you have plants to share or if you need plants and we will do our best to connect you. Please include your preferred mode of contact, your general location, and the species of plants you have to offer/are looking for. Native plant providers, please be sure to ACCURATELY IDENTIFY any species that you are able to share. And, again, thanks!!
