The Kent Conservation District hosts two native plant sales each year. One in the Spring and one in the Fall. Because the native plants of Michigan have evolved with our unique climate and soils, they are often times better adapted to our local conditions than their non-native or cultivated counterparts.
Native plants also play an important role in the life cycle of many different species of wildlife including many butterflies, song birds and mammals.
Please consider using Michigan Natives for your next planting.
