Native Plant Sale – 2023

Jeanette and Marilyn tend to the plants at the greenhouse at Kankakee Sands.

Pick-up of pre-ordered plants will be Saturday, May 27, 2023

Order forms for our Native Plant Sale will be available on our website beginning in mid-April. Follow us on our Facebook page to get the latest news on our sale. The plant pick-up date is Saturday, May 27, 2023 at the Kankakee Sands Native Plant Nursery. As always, we’ll have extra plants available to browse during the pick-up time.

Seeds for our sale are locally collected by volunteers within the Kankakee Sands ecoregion. Our plants are grown and nurtured in The Nature Conservancy’s Kankakee Sands greenhouse. We ask for a $1 donation per plant. Your donation stays local and supports conservation efforts in Newton County, Indiana.
