The North Central Conservation District has announced its 2015 plant and seedling sale. The deadline for placing orders is Thursday March 26th. Pick-up dates are April 10th and 11th.

This is the Conservation District's main fund raising event for the year. All proceeds are used to fund conservation programs, environmental education, and technical assistance to landowners and municipalities.

This is a great opportunity to stock up on native plants for your garden and landscape.

Why are native plants important?
  • Native insects need native plants to thrive.
  • Native birds and mammals need native insects as well as native plants to thrive.
  • Often non-native plants do not supply a viable food source for our native insects and wildlife.
  • For example, our native oaks support over 500 native butterflies and moths. By contrast, invasive Phragmites supports 170 species in its homeland, while only 5 species here.
