Brodhead Watershed Assn. Native Plant Sale May 8-9 In Monroe County

This mother’s day, give a gift that Mother Nature can appreciate: purchase native plants at the Brodhead Creek Watershed Association’s Native Plant Sale. While there, shoppers can get expert clean-water gardening advice from BWA members as well as designs and plants for rain gardens, buffer strips and streambanks.
Native plants are important because they benefit the soil, water, native insects and wildlife in our landscape, and because they replace aggressive, non-native invasive plants. Replacing invasives with native plants returns the environment to a more natural state, where plants and wildlife evolved successfully together.
Receive 10 percent off plant sale purchases at the Members-only Presale on May 8 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Becoming a BWA member is easy: sign up online or pay at the Presale. To become a member online.
The May 9 Native Plant Sale is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
