More than 100 varieties of native trees, shrubs, ground covers and perennials will be available at the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District’s 11th Annual Fall Native Plant Sale.
The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Tualatin Hills Nature Center, 15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton. Admission is free.
Fall is an excellent time to introduce native plants to your garden which require less care and water and provide greater wildlife benefits than many ornamental plants.
“Planting now gives your plants a head start so they can become established for next spring’s growing season. Nature will take care of the watering for you this winter,” said Karen Munday, program coordinator at the Nature Center.
Gardening experts, THPRD Natural Resources staff, and knowledgeable volunteers will be on hand to help gardeners make the right choice for their landscape.
The event is sponsored by Friends of the Tualatin Hills Nature Park. Proceeds from sales will go to park improvements and environmental education. For more information, call the Nature Center at 503-629-6350.
