Native Plant Sale and Live Auction

The plant sale will be held near the Knapp Gym on a shady grassy lawn. The majority of the plants will be marked for individual sale. You can bid on special or unique natives in the Live auction portion of the sale which begins at 1:30 after  the Annual Meeting.

Pro tips for the plant sale

  • Label each and every plant donated to the sale with Latin name and common name. Only native plants accepted.
  • Bring your own labeled box(es) or containers to collect and carry your plant purchases.
  • To avoid longer wait times in paying by credit cards, bring cash or checks to pay for your plants.

We will gather inside the air-conditioned gym for our picnic lunch from 11:30-1:00.  Bring a side dish or dessert to share. BBQ meat and drinks will be provided. Bring a serving spoon for your side and your own cup for drinks.

The annual meeting will take place from 1-1:30.  The Live auction will begin at 1:30 and final plant purchases will be made from 1:30-2:00.
