Environmental Concern Fall 2015 Native Plant Sale

Environmental Concern Holds 13th Annual Fall Native Plant Sale

Join us for Environmental Concern’s (EC) 13th annual Fall Native Plant Sale. The 2 day sale will be held on Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th from 9am – 4pm on EC’s campus at 201 Boundary Lane in historic St. Michaels (rain or shine). Watch for the signs on St. Michaels Road.

Our offerings include many of the local favorites including red chokeberry and winterberry; buttonbush and sweet pepperbush; silky dogwood and highbush blueberry; and sweet bay magnolia.

In addition, this year we will be offering two free workshops. The first workshop, Native Plants for Cleaner Water, will take place from 10:00 am-11:00 am in EC’s classroom. Discover the basics of native plant selection to bayscape your lawn and clean the Bay. Participants will learn how to plant and maintain native plants in their landscape. Recommendations will be made for native plants that are best suited for stormwater management and for attracting songbirds and butterflies to your garden.

From 11:00-12:00 join us for Milkweeds for Monarchs: Creating Monarch Habitat.  The Mid-Atlantic Monarch Consortium, a partnership led by Environmental Concern (EC), is pleased to present the first of a series of educational workshops on Monarch Butterflies. This series will offer homeowners an opportunity to learn more about this important North American “Near Threatened” species. Participants will learn about the Monarch butterfly, and the dependence of the Monarch caterpillars on native milkweed for survival. Tips for plant selection and habitat creation techniques will be discussed. These important tips will support the creation of Monarch habitat restoration projects on the Eastern Shore.

Pre-registration for the workshop is encouraged. Participation is limited. Please call 410-745-9620 or email to register.

After the workshops browse from the largest collection of locally grown native herbaceous plants, trees and shrubs in the region. EC specializes in native plants grown from seed and propagated on site. Contact EC at 410-745-9620 for additional information or e-mail Pre-orders will be accepted through Wednesday, September 9th.

All proceeds from the plant sale will help fund EC’s mission to improve water quality and enhance native habitat in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. EC is a 501(c)3 public not-for-profit organization.
