           Native Plant Sale - Annual Fall Fundraiser  

           native plant sale - butterfly garden

            The Fall Native Plant Sale is a fundraiser for the district that also helps
             local landowners learn more about planting native to conserve water, 
             protect soil and create habitat for wildlife.  The sale occurs every
            fall, in mid-September at the District Barn on North St. in Boyne City.  The
            species list is available around mid-late August.  The sale is first come,
            first serve, with only habitat  flats available for pre-orders.  The species
            list can be found here or on the district home page.  View some of the 
            species in the district's Native Plant Educational Garden.  Species signs
            contain valuable information about each species, and a pathway winds 
            through to allow guests a more up close look at all of the plants.  

            For more information,
            please contact our main office at 231-582-6193, or email District Manager,
            Alison Adams at alison.adams@macd.org

           Native Plant Workshops are sometimes held in the district's 
           Community Room prior to the sale.  The workshop helps landowners
            learn more about the benefits of planting native as well as which 
           species thrive best in different environments & soil types.
