Fall Native Plant Sale
Purchase quality native plants for your garden. Woody shrubs and fall-flowering plants will be available for purchase at the Carter Historic Farm on Saturday, September 24 from 9 am – noon. Tens of thousands of native plants are grown by the Wood County Park District’s Stewardship Department each year as part of the native plant program environmental conservation effort. The fall and spring native plant sales support these efforts and allow the community to utilize the power of native plants at home.
