2018 Native Plant Sale

Want to add a bit of Wilderness Park to your landscape? Take a look at what’s available through our Native Plant Sale. These plants provide important habitat to pollinators, are well acclimated to the soil and climate, and are personally selected by Bob Henrickson, Assistant Director of Horticulture Programs at Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, longtime Friends of Wilderness Park board member, and host of “How’s It Growin’?” on KZUM Community Radio 89.3 FM.

Order Deadline – April 28

Wilderness Nature Camp Scholarship Deadline April 23

It’s registration time Pioneers Park Nature Center Summer Nature Camps. Friends of Wilderness Park is pleased to provide scholarships for kids ages 6 – 16 who would otherwise not be able to attend. With the loss of the Octagon Building in the Wilderness Day Camp Area last Halloween, camp headquarters this year will be in Pioneers Park. Field trips and activities in Wilderness Park are planned, however.

Wilderness Park Hiking Club

Every month, Friends of Wilderness Park invites you to join hike leader, Madeline Cass, on an immersive experience in Wilderness Park. Madeline is an photographer and mycologist inspired by the Naturalist School in Iowa. Using art and science to build bridges between us and the rest of nature, our hikes will feature scientific identification and artistic conversations, wedding our hearts and minds to the wild.
