Bratton says Wild Ones programs are educational: they explain the importance of different soils, plants, and landscape design. These programs are open to the public at the Fenner Nature Center.

It’s Wednesday and time for our Neighbors in Action segment, where we feature people and organizations working to make our community a better place. Today we feature the Red Cedar chapter of Wild Ones, a national organization that promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices and environmental education.

Current State talks with Betty Seagull, president of the Red Cedar chapter of Wild Ones, and board member Clara Bratton. Seagull says the focus at Wild Ones is to help people plant native Michigan species in their garden as a way to restore habitat.

We could always use more nominations and we know there are people and organizations out there that are doing excellent work, but we just don’t know about them. Please help us out and tweet us suggestions at  @KARCurrentState or send us an email to Put “Neighbors in Action” in the subject line and tell us why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
