Midwestern friends - As you know, using local native species, which have deep roots and are adapted to local climates, is the best way to deal with drought. Learn more about native plants at the Wild Ones Annual Conference July 14-16 in Naperville, Illinois. We have a wide variety of courses we're offering on topics including native plants 101, landscape design, sedges, native trees, birdscaping, dealing with invasives, wildlife and habitat, outdoor classrooms, children's education, stormwater management, and more.

We're also having a photo contest (you do not need to attend the conference to enter) and important speakers such as Gerould Wilhelm, author of Plants of the Chicago Region, Darrel Morrison, designer of the Ladybird Johnson Wildlife Center, and Michael Jeffords, scientist, entomologist, ecologist, photographer and co-author of Illinois Wilds.

In addition, we've lined up some phenomenal tours of local restoration projects, nurseries, green building, native plant roofs, etc. For more information and to register now for early bird pricing, go to http://www.for-wild.org/conference/2006/.
