Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Hosts Fall Native Plant Sale Sept. 14 In Berks County

The Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Berks County will host its annual Autumn Native Plant Sale on September 14 outside of the Visitor Center from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., featuring over 100 species of native trees, grasses, vines, shrubs, and flowering plants. 
The sale is open to the public, and all proceeds benefit Hawk Mountain's conservation and education programs.
Native plants available for purchase include asters, goldenrods, milkweeds, coneflowers, brown-eyed susans, and more. 
Plant sale volunteers will help make the sale enjoyable, educational, and as convenient as possible; they will carry purchases to buyers' cars, store them until the end of the day's visit, and offer great gardening tips. 
Garden volunteers will also be present to help visitors with plant selection and care. In addition, the bookstore offers a year-round selection of native plant gardening books for those interested in learning more.
The sale provides a great reason to explore the Sanctuary's trails and scenic overlooks, since the Autumn Hawkwatch will be in full swing and migrating hawks can be seen soaring in increasing numbers. 
Mid-September is the peak of broad-winged hawk migration, Hawk Mountain's most numerous migrant, so big flights are possible.
85th Anniversary
In addition to the sale, the Sanctuary will be celebrating its 85th anniversary. Visitors can take a free piece of cake and are invited to view the grand unveiling of the new, official state historical marker, featuring keynote speaker Stephen Edge, grandson of Sanctuary Founder Rosalie Edge. 
Staff, volunteers, and trainees will also offer the regular weekend programs, including the free Raptors Up Close program. Click Here for more upcoming events.
