Welcome to Wild Ones Roanoke Region Chapter!

Wild Ones Roanoke Region Chapter is based in Roanoke and promotes the use of plants native to Southwest Virginia in the Ridge and Valley, Piedmont Foothills, and Blue Ridge ecoregions. The chapter primarily serves communities in Bedford, Botetourt, Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and Roanoke counties. But anyone is welcome to join!

We promote environmentally friendly, sound landscaping to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration, and establishment of native plant communities across the United States.

Wild Ones chapters are a space where like-minded people gather to support each other in learning about landscaping with native plants and to share with others in their communities and networks about why it’s important to reintroduce native plants into public and private gardens and how to go about doing it. Chapters are where change happens.

The Roanoke Region Chapter was formed on February 28, 2024. As we grow, we will offer as many programs, activities, and events as we can. We plan to have programs on native plants and habitat gardening, landscaping workshops, propagation workshops, native plant tours, making baskets from invasive plants, birdscaping, developing an ecolawn, and much more. Check back often for more information.

We are excited to offer local residents the opportunity to expand their impact in the natural landscaping movement and help promote native plants. We hope you’ll join us.
