Come and join us in our celebration of spring by purchasing low cost native plants at Whatcom Conservation District’s Annual Plant Sale and Expo! This year there will be 40 different species of native, bareroot trees and shrubs along with a variety of potted perennials. Some of this year’s species include yellow and western red cedars, Puget Sound juniper, western larch, garry oak, red elderberry, red flowering currant, beaked hazelnut, and more! Once again, several local nursery vendors and environmental organizations will be there to provide even more plant purchasing options. The festivities include a variety of fun, earth-friendly educational opportunities, entertainment, and food.
The Whatcom Conservation District (WCD) is currently accepting pre-orders for its Native Plant Sale. Plants are sold in bundles during the pre-order period. Pre-orders must be received at the WCD office by Monday March 16th and require a $100.00 minimum purchase. A 50% deposit is due upon pre-order placement. Payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card. Pre-order pick up will be available before the open sale on Friday, March 27th between 9:00am-3:00pm, at the site of the sale. Orders can also be picked up at the Open Sale, Saturday, March 28th. Order forms and plant descriptions are available on WCD’s website www.whatcomcd.org or requested from the WCD office at (360) 526-2381 or e-mail WCD@whatcomcd.org.
Plants can also be purchased individually at our open sale. All day of sale purchases are on a first-come, first-serve basis on March 28th, from 9:00am-2:00pm. The sale will be held on the campus of Whatcom Community College at 237 W. Kellogg Rd. at the Roe Studio.
The purpose of the WCD’s annual plant sale is to promote the stewardship and conservation of our natural resources. Planting native trees and shrubs can provide many positive benefits to your property and the natural environment such as improved water quality, enhanced fish and wildlife habitat, reduction of wind and soil erosion, cleaner air, reduction of energy costs, and beautification of your property! Additionally, proceeds from the plant sale support the WCD’s conservation education programs.
