Audubon Center & Sanctuary
Jamestown Audubon Nature Center’s annual Plant Exchange & Sale will be held 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, May 21 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.
Gardeners know there are always volunteer plants that spring up and need new homes. The Plant Exchange & Sale was born to share those volunteers. It has grown to include donations from nurseries to provide some friendly and in-demand plants, a sale option for those just starting out who don’t yet have extras, and some seeds and informational displays.
Bring your extras, your volunteers and seedlings or plants you don’t have room for. Labels including the name of the plant, color (if known), and sun/shade preference are appreciated. Bring plants in pots (no plastic bags) or money, and exchange or buy plants and take them home.
Plants are priced based on condition, species and size.
Not all plants will be accepted on exchange, and it is not an even one-for-one exchange rate. Tickets are given as credit when plants are brought in and can be used towards the purchase of new plants. Audubon reserves the right to refuse plants based on species or condition.
If you are interested only in donating, plants can be dropped off at the Nature Center on Thursday, May 19 or Friday, May 20.
If you are interested in volunteering, Audubon can use volunteers on Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21 for repotting, set up, answering questions and clean-up.
To learn more information or to volunteer, call Audubon naturalist/volunteer coordinator Katie Finch at (716) 569-2345 or visit their website.
