Spring Native Plant Sale

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary will host its annual Spring Native Plant Sale outside of the Visitor Center on Saturday, May 14 from 10 am - 3 pm and Sunday, May 15 from 10 am to 2 pm, featuring almost 100 species of native trees, grasses, ferns, shrubs, and flowering plants. The sale is open to the public, and all proceeds benefit Hawk Mountain's conservation and education programs.

Native plants available for purchase include asters, sunflowers, milkweeds, mountain laurel, phlox, and much more. Plant sale volunteers will help make the sale enjoyable, educational, and as convenient as possible; they 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. The bookstore also offers a year-round selection of native plant gardening books for those interested in learning more.

The sale also provides a great reason to explore the Sanctuary's trails and scenic overlooks, since it will be the last weekend of the Spring Migration Hawkwatch. It will be a busy and exciting weekend on the Mountain, with other events being held such as World Migratory Bird Day and accompanying guided bird walk, a showing of the Vanishing of the Bees documentary, and a Full Moon Hike!

Staff, volunteers, and trainees will also offer the regularly scheduled weekend programs, including the free Raptors Up Close program. Upcoming events and details are always available at
