Public Welcome Family Friendly Public Restroom Free Public Parking Lots of Physical Activity
Four chapter members (2 officers, 2 members) are participating by opening their own gardens as HOST GARDENS for this event organized by a local (RVA-area) master naturalist. The Wild Ones members are participating as Wild Ones. Hosts open their native plant gardens to the public and are available to answer questions. Publicity emphasizes the event is family friendly but asks the public not to bring pets. Hosts have discretion to offer light refreshments and provide handouts/information (including information about Wild Ones). The houses are not included in tours but hosts have discretion to make restrooms available as needed. Public parking is available at each location but varies by location as these are private homes. The organizer has arranged for at least 1 volunteer to be available to assist hosts with crowd management. Participating locations in 2023 are: Ashland, VA (3 locations); *Midlothian, Bon Air, and North Chesterfield (County), VA; the Far West End and Westover Hills neighborhoods in Richmond; *Glen Allen, VA; and *Southeastern VA (Chesapeake Area).
