Shoppers at the Native Plant Sale

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary will host its annual Spring Native Plant Sale on Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21 outside the Visitor Center, featuring almost 100 species of native trees, grasses, ferns, shrubs, and flowering plants. The sale is open to the public 10am-3pm on Saturday and 10am-2pm on Sunday, and all proceeds benefit Hawk Mountain's conservation and education programs.

Native plants available for purchase will include asters, sunflowers, milkweeds, mountain laurel, phlox, and more. Volunteers help make the sale as enjoyable, educational, and convenient as possible. Plant sale volunteers will carry purchases to buyers' cars, store them until the end of the day's visit, and offer great gardening tips for any home landscape. Garden volunteers will be available to help visitors with plant selection and care. For those interested in learning more, Hawk Mountain’s bookstore offers a selection of native plant gardening books year-round.

The sale also presents visitors with a great excuse to explore the Sanctuary's trails and scenic overlooks, and even attend the free Raptors Up Close! program, hosted every weekend through Memorial Day in the Amphitheater. Additionally on Saturday, May 20, visitors can stay late to learn all about The Mysterious World of Bats and witness a release of rehabilitated bats back into the wild. More upcoming events and details are always available at
