Audubon Center & Sanctuary
A plant exchange and sale will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 16, in the front yard of the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., Jamestown.
There is no fee. Take plants to exchange or money to buy plants.
The event started out as a place for people to exchange extra plants with other gardeners. It grew to include donations from nurseries, a sale option for those just starting out who don’t yet have extra plants, and some seeds. There will also be informational displays.
Take plants in pots (no plastic bags). 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 certain plants based on species or condition.
The event will be held rain or shine.
If you are interested only in donating, plants can be dropped off at the Nature Center on Thursday or Friday, May 14 or 15.
If you are interested in volunteering, Audubon can use volunteers on Friday, May 15 and Saturday, May 16 for repotting, set up, answering questions and clean-up. To volunteer, call Audubon naturalist/volunteer coordinator Katie Finch at (716) 569-2345.
The Plant Exchange & Sale benefits the Nature Center’s gardens.
