Wild Ones St. Louis 2008 Year-end Report

Submitted by Marilyn Chryst, President, St. Louis Chapter

We co-sponsored (with Grow Native! and Shaw Nature Reserve) a Landscape Challenge contest. For our part we publicized, helped judge, and planted the winning yard.

We held the traditional August joint meeting with the Mid-Missouri Chapter. It was held at a new (LEEDS Silver) campus of St. Louis Community College.

We again had a booth at Shaw Nature Reserve’s Spring Wildflower Sale.

8 of our 10 meetings were at members’ homes. Some of these were yard consults (What can I do?) and some of these were yard tours (Look what I did!).

We ended the year with our Nov. seed exchange and pot luck supper. See enclosed picture taken there. The poster is a birthday card made by one of our members. The St. Louis Chapter celebrated 10 years in October!
