Connecting people and native plants for a healthy planet

Founded in January 2023 as a Seedling Chapter, Wild Ones Mid-Hudson Valley officially chartered one year later in February 2024. We promote native landscapes through education, advocacy, and collaborative action in New York’s Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, and Putnam counties.

A healthy planet relies on native plants

Over the last century, unchecked development and urbanization have led to the loss of millions of acres of diverse habitats nationwide. The good news? Every individual holds the power to make a positive impact. By planting native plants, we can contribute to a healthier planet and foster more resilient ecosystems – bringing back pollinators, supporting wildlife, and rebuilding the natural beauty of the wild.

You can make a difference

Together, we are transforming yards, gardens, community spaces, and natural areas into vibrant havens for native plants and wildlife. Make an impact in your community by:

  • Installing a pollinator garden
  • Building a rain garden or pond to mitigate stormwater runoff and provide wildlife habitat
  • Planting native trees and shrubs for birds
  • Introducing native plants into an existing flower bed
  • Reducing and replacing non-native turf
  • Sharing what you learn and grow with others
  • Advocating for change in policies and practices
