The Wild Ones South Bend chapter, formed in 2021, promotes native landscapes and the wildlife that depends on them. We serve the greater Michiana region of Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan, to connect people and native plants for a healthy planet. Wild Ones South Bend values respect, inclusivity, evidence-based information, action, and growth.
The Chapter holds monthly meetings at Pinhook Park Community Center featuring educational speakers and activities, a twice-annual plant sale, field trips, community projects, and invasive removal days. We also provide educational outreach through presentations and tabling events. Our members are offered plant-sharing opportunities, and have access to the quarterly Wild Ones Journal, the New Member Handbook, native garden designs, and many educational resources available at wildones.org. In addition, our chapter website offers educational resources, including book and website recommendations, local native plant information, and much more.
