Aiming Higher!

February 09, 2023

Wow, I seriously cannot believe this. We overshot our goal of $2,500 in not even two weeks. I, Kyle, and all the other leaders of the Davis Rewilding Society are simply blown away at our donors' generosity. When we started this campaign, we had no idea how successful it was going to be. We are humbled to have received this much support, and glad to know there are so many wonderful people out there who align with our goals for Davis, who love native plants, and who want to help restore our ecosystems.

With the reaching of our original goal, we are now aiming higher! Over the past quarter, we have identified a number of new spots on campus that could use native plants. Our new goal of $3,500 will allow us to consider working on these spots by allowing us to purchase more plants, seeds, tools, and resources for our hardworking volunteers. Please share this campaign widely to help us meet our new goal; we would be honored to receive your support.

Wow! Thank you so much to every individual who has donated thus far to our campaign. We have been blown away by the amount of support we've received from like-minded people who all care about our native ecosystems.

Let's make it to $2,500! Please share this campaign with your friends, family, colleagues, and anyone else who you think would appreciate our work. Thank you all!

Choose a giving level


Sprinkle wildflower seeds!

Flowering plants are the backbone of our native ecosystems, and a high diversity of flowering plants will support a high diversity of wildlife! Your $5 donation will help us sow the seeds of a native wildflower such as California Poppy or Lacy Phacelia.


Buy 1 native plant!

Native plants at standard nursery size usually cost between $10-15. This amount will purchase one plant for inclusion in one of our habitat gardens, and feed countless wildlife species!


Make a deeper impact!

Native plants don’t plant themselves! This tier will cover one shovel or other tool used in the installation of our gardens.


Fund a weatherproof info sign!

What do we have here? Buy an informational sign to educate passersby about the importance of native plants.


Sustain our volunteers!

Planting native plants is hard work! This amount is enough to ensure our volunteers have access to ample snacks and water for our volunteer days.


Fund our pollinator garden!

Plant an entire native garden! With this donation you can buy enough supplies for a whole project and receive name recognition if desired on our informational sign.
