Native plant sale is Aug. 27

On Saturday, Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Chautauqua Marina and the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will be co-hosting a native plant sale, with proceeds benefitting CWC and Chautauqua Lake.

A variety of native plants will be available for purchase from local vendors including Amanda’s Garden, Royal Fern Nursery, Turnbull Nursery and Hickory Hurst Farm. CWC Conservationist Carol Markham will be on hand to answer questions about native plant selection and native garden design.

Admission is free, and no RSVPs are needed. The event will be rain or shine at the marina at 104 West Lake Road in Mayville. Guided educational lakeside buffer walks will also be offered, weather permitting. Fall is a great time to plant, and native plants can often be difficult to find locally, making this event a great opportunity for one-stop shopping for plants that are native to our area.
