About Us

Wild Ones Front Range

Wild Ones Front Range (WOFR) is a chapter of the National Wild Ones organization.  We empower people to plant and promote native landscapes that sustain local ecosystems for a climate resilient future.  We do this by providing how-to resources and encouraging collaboration among our members. 

We are the first chapter in Colorado and serve the region from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs, including the Denver-metro area and Boulder. 

Native Plant Landscaping Statement

The Wild Ones Front Range Chapter supports everyone who is committed to adding more native plants to their part of the Front Range, from a handful to a yard full. Each native plant that you add provides a landing place, food source, and/or a nesting site for local wildlife. You can place potted native plants on your balcony or simply replace non-thriving plants in your landscape with natives over time. Of course, the more native plants there are, the bigger the impact!  If your goal is to create a sustainable biodiverse habitat, we suggest incorporating at least 70% native species into your garden.
