Wild Ones is a national not-for-profit environmental education and advocacy organization whose headquarters are in Appleton, Wisconsin. The Gibson Woods - Chapter 38 branch in Hammond, Indiana was established in 2000, when several people came together at the Gibson Woods Nature Center to learn more about the benefits of landscaping with native plants. Gibson Woods is noted for its high diversity of native plants. This made it the natural choice for the monthly meeting place of this newly formed group. Wild Ones mission is to “promote environmentally sound landscaping practices, to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and the establishment of native plant communities".
