Dear <<First Name>> 

Order Your Native Plants Now

Economically-priced, local eco-type native plants will  be available at West Cook Wild Ones’ Annual Plant  Sale.   Online ordering is available now at:

Whether you’d like to attract birds, butterflies, and other pollinators or find unique plants for shade, sun, rain gardens, or clay soil, you’ll have many options at our sale.  In addition to the many wonderful plants offered last year, we will have new selections available.  Some of these additions were included as a result of member input.  All profits go to help us bring compelling speakers and support our Wildlife Corridor outreach. 

Pick-up will be at our Living Landscapes: A Native Garden Conference featuring Doug Tallamy with several other workshops on May 17, 2015 at Dominican University. 

Ordering deadline is March 31, 2015.
