Montreat Native Plant Sale Returns April 23

After two years of hiatus due to the pandemic, the Montreat Native Plant Sale is returning. The Montreat Landcare Committee is hosting the event at the Moore Center field at Lake Susan on Saturday, April 23, from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Vendors will be offering native plants from local nurseries. Educational programs will be offered all day including Monarch butterflies, mason bees, pollinators and rain gardens, and the American chestnut tree. Exhibits will be set up and the Nature Center will host a salamander creek expedition. Mountain music will enhance the atmosphere, and children’s programs will keep the little people occupied. A food truck will be on premises. CLICK HERE for a brochure about all the activities.
