Posted on Tuesday, March 17, 2020:
The Lexington chapter of Wild Ones will not hold any meetings during the remainder of March or in April. The stream walk in Idle Hour Park on March 21 and the membership meeting on April 2 have been canceled due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
We hope to resume our meetings with our annual Plant Exchange on May 7, but things are very uncertain at this time. Please watch this website for announcements about up-coming events or cancellations.
We continue to welcome applications for our Garden Grant which is available to Wild Ones members. Please find details about the application, due on April 17, by clicking on “Grants” in the menu bar above.
And finally, while it seems wise to avoid larger gatherings, there is still much you can do for plants, critters and the environment. You can pick up litter along a stream or remove some invasives in a public location. You can offer help to a person or a group that manages a public planting space somewhere near you. You can do this by yourself, with a partner or with a small group of friends.
And remember, in this time of crisis, your garden may be your best friend, greatly in need of your attention and poised to give you no end of joy.
All our programs are open to the public
