Manada Conservancy Native Plant Sale, etc.

Saturday, September 11, 9:00 – 2:00 pm,
Meadowood Native Plant Nursery, 24 Meadowood Dr, Hummelstown

Fall is a great time to plant native trees, shrubs, and perennials. Using native plants can be a personal, small scale way to connect to the local environment and attract local birds, butterflies, and other pollinators that rely on native species for their survival. Customer service volunteers will be available to provide information and assistance with plant selection. There will be a demonstration about planting native trees and other special plant displays. The sale will be held RAIN OR SHINE. Proceeds from this sale support the land preservation and education work of The Manada Conservancy. Members of the Conservancy receive a 10% discount.


Tuesday, September 21 7:00 pm,
Hershey Public Library #4889

Julienne Schieffer, a Pennsylvania State University extension forester will present a program on the use of edible native plants. The program is part of The Manada Conservancy Education series. Admission is free and open to the public, but please call Derry Township Parks & Recreation at 533-7138 to register.
