  • Native Plants in Formal Landscape topic of March Wild Ones Meeting -Gibson Woods - Guest speaker at the Saturday, March 7 Wild Ones meeting is Mark O’Brien, Nursery Operations Manager, Principal Cardno JFNew who will discuss “Native Plants in a Formal Landscape” in a colorful presentation on Midwestern native grasses and wildflowers. Mr. O’Brien has been with Cardno JFNew for 15 years and leads Cardno’s native plant nursery in Walkerton IN. He is President of the Walkerton Parks Foundation and on the board of directors of the Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association.

    Gibson Woods Wild Ones is a local chapter of Wild Ones, Native Plants, Natural Landscapes. Meetings are held at 10 a.m. at Gibson Woods Nature Preserve.

    Through chapter activities and guest speakers meeting attendees have learned the many aspects of incorporating native plants into their own landscaping. Those who grow native plants have not only brought the beauty of native wildflowers and grasses to their yards, but they have provided a more inviting habitat for butterflies and songbirds.

    Volunteers help out at the Oak Ridge Prairie native plant nursery and greenhouse growing plants for natural area restoration projects, in addition to helping maintain the native plant gardens at Gibson Woods. Proceeds from the annual spring native plant sale, hosted by the group, help fund resources, projects and programs for Lake County Parks. Join us for one of our informative meetings to learn more about how you can “grow wild” in your own backyard. For more information call 219-844-3188.

    Gibson Woods Nature Preserve is located at 6201 Parrish Avenue in Hammond, IN 46323. From I/80-94 take Cline Avenue north to the169th Street exit then west to Parrish and north to the park. Coming from Chicago exit I/80/94 at exit 3 Kennedy north for 1.5 miles then east for ½ mile on 165th to Parrish then north to the park entrance. GPS coordinates: 41.599352,-87.45186
