Welcome to Wild Ones Long Island

We serve Nassau, Suffolk, and New York City’s boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens.

Wild Ones is a national non-profit organization with local chapters that promote the many benefits of landscaping using native plants such as wildflowers, shrubs, trees, and grasses. Native plants are those which were growing here before European settlement and are important to sustain the wildlife that also calls this area home. Native plants thrive in our environment which they have adapted to over thousands of years and thus need little assistance from us to flourish.

Our vision for the future is to be the recognized voice for native plants and sustainable landscaping in our region by promoting increased use of native plantings that create living landscapes through grassroots efforts by example, education, marketing, and personalized support.

If you are looking for any of this information please join us at our next event and consider joining Wild Ones. If you would like to help us in providing these services please contact us so we can start utilizing your skills.
