GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Calvin College will be holding its annual Ecosystem Preserve native plant sale this Saturday, May 4.

The sale will take place 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Bunker Interpretive Center on Calvin’s campus.  All profits from the sale will go toward education programs at the Ecosystem Preserve, allowing community members to explore the 90-acre site at little or no cost.

The native plant sale features more than 75 varieties of native wildflowers, shrubs and grasses for all growing conditions. For a complete list of plants for sale visit: www.calvin.edu/academic/eco-preserve/newsandevents .

Biology professor Dave Warners says that the plant prices will be significantly lower than what you would pay a native plant grower. He says he is keeping the costs low to encourage people to plant these native genotypes in their yards.
