15th Annual Native Plant Sale

When: Saturday, April 26, 2014, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. (Members can enter at 9:30 a.m.)

Where: Westchester Community College

Park in Visitor Lot #1

Description: Thousands of beautiful, beneficial native plants await your choosing at our annual sale. This year we will celebrate the birthday of wildlife artist John James Audubon (1785–1851) with a selection of shrubs and perennials especially attractive to birds, bringing community-wide attention to the role gardens can play as habitat. We’re teaming with local Audubon chapters to offer other bird-themed activities as well.

The day kicks off at 8:15 a.m. with a guided bird walk on campus led by Bedford Audubon’s naturalist (bring your binoculars!). Other bird-themed activities include information about local birds, the sale of garden accessories such as bird baths, houses, and feeders by the Wild Bird Center, and other celebratory treats. So come wish a “Happy Bird-day” to Audubon and plant a native species in his honor. Admission is free. Members of The Native Plant Center can enter at 9:30 a.m.
