Several of our local area Soil and Water Conservation Districts offer native tree, shrub and plant sales each year. According to the East Multnomah SWCD website, “Native plants provide a beautiful, hardy, drought resistant, low maintenance landscape while benefiting the environment. Native plants, once established, save time and money by eliminating or significantly reducing the need for fertilizers, pesticides, water and lawn maintenance equipment.”
Native plant sales offer community members an opportunity to get a wide variety of native species at a great price. Check out these three great sales and follow the links to find additional details.
