The Gibson Woods Chapter of Wild Ones continues to grow as the interest in gardening with native plants increases. The gardeners learn more about native plants, from what works well for your soil type to what attracts birds and butterflies. After all, the purpose of natural landscaping is to put something back for the original inhabitants of any given area and make the landscape more environmentally sound. 

Meetings are normally held the 1st Saturday of the month at Gibson Woods Nature Preserve, located at 6201 Parrish Ave. in Hammond at 10AM.

It is also interesting and educational to learn about native plants and their traditional uses. Guest speakers are scheduled when possible and a native plant sale is held each spring. If you are interested in incorporating natives in your landscape, Gibson Woods Wild Ones would be glad to help.
