Who we are

Our mission

Wild Ones logo

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

What HGCNY does

We have monthly programs, most of which are free and open to the public. We also have an annual field trip and Show Me, Help Me tours in the summer.

And our annual plant sales help get native plants planted out there in CNY and, equally important, support the emerging local native plant nurseries, helping make native plants easier to obtain and the common sense default choice for home landscapes.
