Plant exchange & sale at Audubon Nature Center

Date(s) - Saturday, May 20, 2017
11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Audubon Community Nature Center


Audubon Community Nature Center will hold its annual plant exchange and sale from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 20 at the center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.

With the plant exchange, gardeners can trade their extra plants for new items, or simply provide plants for sale for those who need them. Local nurseries donate plants, and occasionally some ephemeral spring wildflowers or fruit vines and bushes show up.

New this year is a “Why Go Native?” booth featuring local butterflies and which natives to plant for them, which natives are the best pollinator plants, and which plants will help your vegetable garden by attracting beneficial insects. There may even be some native plants for sale at that booth.

Take cash if you want to purchase plants. If you want to trade, plants of a non-invasive variety must be in pots and in good condition. Audubon reserves the right to refuse plants or adjust the exchange rate based on species and condition. If you wish to donate but can’t make it on Saturday, you may drop plants off as early as Thursday, May 18.

This event is outdoors, so come prepared for the weather.
