Thank you to everyone who supported our 2021 Native Plant Sale! This was our most successful sale ever. We raised $3,598 to support conservation work in Newton County.

Our plant sale funds were used to purchase a bison hide for The Nature Conservancy. The hide will be used at Kankakee Sands for educational outreach programs and school groups.
