PURPOSE OF THE ANNUAL NATIVE PLANT SALE:
The purpose of the WCD’s annual plant sale is to promote the stewardship andconservation of our natural resources. The plants sold at this sale are “conservationgrade”, which means they are graded on their ability to survive, not on their ornamentalvalue. Seedling plants are not large (generally between 10” and 36” tall), so your order willfi t in the trunk or back seat of your car. On the scheduled pick up days, you can drivethrough our pick up event and we will put the order in your vehicle.


Planting native trees and shrubs can provide many positive benefi ts to your property andthe natural environment such as improved water quality, enhanced fi sh and wildlifehabitat, reduction of wind and soil erosion, cleaner air, reduction of energy costs, andbeautifi cation of your property! This sale is a great opportunity to purchase low costnative plants and to get them in the ground before the growing season begins. Experienced conservationists will be available to answer your native plant questions.
The event is a self-supporting program of the Whatcom Conservation District withsupport by loyal volunteers and local businesses.
