Wild Ones 2017 Building Healthy Habitats Today for a Better Tomorrow Conference presented by the Lake to Prairie Chapter. Our chapter’s mission is to educate, which we do with our monthly meetings at the Fremont Public Library, covering a wide range of natural landscaping and environmental education topics. Bringing educators together in one place at this conference will provide a wealth of information for people new to the native plant idea and the practiced native gardener.
This year our conference is going back to our roots as a native landscaping group. A co-dependent relationship exists between the plant and the animal world – one cannot live without the other. The circle of life is only possible when our ecosystem is healthy. Through native landscaping, we can build a healthier environment to support the web of life in our own backyards and help restore habitats for the next generation.
Chief Seattle, a member of the Duwarnish tribe of Puget Sound Indians in Washington, said “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, but rather borrow it from our descendants.” This conference reminds us of his words and will teach us what we have to do, in our own landscapes, for a better tomorrow.
