About the sign

Join the Northeast Ohio Native Habitat Corridor and grow the native plant movement! Spark your neighbors’ curiosity by displaying this colorful yard sign in your garden and adding your garden to the map. Sign sales support Wild Ones Greater Cleveland, helping us grow the Habitat Corridor and provide free education about the importance of native plants.

The sign is 7.5” in diameter and made of durable aluminum. The QR code directs people to the Northeast Ohio Native Habitat Corridor website. The sign is double-sided with the same image on both sides.

You can purchase a sign for $25 (plus tax) at a participating native plant nursery or at certain in-person Wild Ones events.

About the artist

Our sign was designed by local artist and illustrator Jeff Suntala, who generously volunteered his time and skill for this project.

Jeff has decades of experience working in a wide variety of media, and you can see more of his work at his illustration, watercolor, and historic ballpark illustration websites.

Posting your sign

Your sign has two small holes (top and bottom) that allow it to be mounted with #4 or #6 screws or with small nails. It can be mounted to a wooden stake, nailed to a wall or fence, or hung from a garden flag stand/shepherd’s hook using zip ties or thin metal rings.

To mount your sign on a wooden stake you will need:

First, screw your sign onto your wooden stake. Then, pound the stake about 1′ into the ground. You can place the sign about an inch below the top of the stake (option 1 below) or at the top of the stake (option 2 below). Option 2 will require more care in placing the top screw and when pounding the stake into the ground.

Option 2
