Pat and Tony own a bluff with a beautiful view of the Puget Sound, but it’s not always acting pretty. It’s sandy, sensitive and has even had some landslides. They started looking into plants that would help protect and stabilize their land, and after connecting with their local conservation district, they discovered the native plant sale.

Tote BagPURPOSE OF THE ANNUAL NATIVE PLANT SALE:

The purpose of the WCD’s annual plant sale is to promote the stewardship and conservation of our natural resources. The plants sold at this sale are “conservation grade”, which means they are graded on their ability to survive, not on their ornamental value. Seedling plants are not large (generally between 10” and 36” tall), so your order will fit in the trunk or back seat of your car. On the scheduled pick up days, you can drive through our pick up event and we will put the order in your vehicle.

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!  This sale is a great opportunity to purchase low cost native 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 with support by loyal volunteers and local businesses.
