Native Plant Sale - Annual Fall Fundraiser (Sept)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The species list is usually complete with colors, sun/water
preferences for each species, soil preference and height.
The species list is released each August at our Annual
Garden Party Event & Open House, and can also be found
here, on the home page or at the District office after the
Garden Party (late August). Pre-ordering for Garden
Habitat Flats Only. Fall sale is first come, first serve.
District Volunteer and native plant enthusiast,

at our first Native Plant Sale in 2019.
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.
