Map & directions:

Our featured speaker, Judy Nauseef, will discuss Native Plants in the Designed Landscape. We all want our gardens to thrive and provide healthy environments for our families and native wildlife. Using native plants is just one step toward achieving our goals. The other is to create a plan that suits our needs and that of the plants. Learn basic tools to discover how to add habitat to your landscape and how to choose a plant community. Learn also how a backyard designed for native plants starts the process of creating a sustainable landscape.
A plan will give you the confidence to implement it in stages, knowing that the final outcome is a cohesive landscape. The process to become aware of the specific conditions in your yard will help you to make sensible plant purchases.
Our speaker, Judy Nauseef is a landscape designer working in Eastern Iowa. She is a certified fellow of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers and an Iowa Certified Nursery Professional. Judy will sign her recent book, Gardening with Native Plants in the Upper Midwest: Bringing the Tallgrass Prairie Home, after the program. Book will be available for purchase.

This event is free and open to the public. The Mennonite Church of Normal is a handicap accessible building.

Wild Ones is a national non-profit organization of local chapters promoting the use of native plants in home and urban landscapes. For more information on our local chapter, Illinois Prairie, please visit our website,
