The choices we make in our yards and gardens can have an impact on the wildlife diversity of our local ecosystems. Come to the native plant sale to discover the wide variety of native plants available for landscaping in your own backyard.

Attend the gardening seminars on Saturday to learn more about how to use native plants and take a guided walk to see spring wildflowers and mushrooms.
