Native Wildflower-Potted Plant Pre-Order Pickup & Browse ‘N Buy
May 22 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
All are welcome to place a pre-order for this year’s Saturday, May 22, 2021 Michigan Native Plant Sale pickup date. If you are interested in pre-ordering, the deadline is May 6th and you can find the order form and online store on our website (https://www.kentconservation.org/plant-sales/). The author of Bringing Nature Home, Doug Tallamy has shared that over the past century, urbanization has taken intact, ecologically productive land and fragmented and transformed it with lawns and exotic ornamental plants. The continental U.S. lost a staggering 150 million acres of habitat and farmland to urban sprawl, and that trend is not slowing. So, what can you do about it? We can help habitat loss by planting native species in our own yards and office spaces. We are proud to be one of the few Districts that sell 100% native. Pickup instructions will be made available online, pre-order pickup is Saturday, May 22nd 10-3pm at the corner of Leonard and Beltline: 3260 Eagle Park Dr NE, Grand Rapids (just north of Meijer Gardens).
