Native Plant Sale

Each spring the Itasca SWCD conducts a native tree and plant sale to help promote the planting of native species and give landowners a convenient way to obtain their favorite plants.  We offer a variety of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, grasses and sedges.  Orders are collected throughout the fall and winter.  Orders are picked up at the Itasca County Fairgrounds on the north side of Grand Rapids.  To be sure you get the plants of your choice please be sure to order ahead of time.  SWCD staff attend the sale and are available to answer any natural resource related questions regardless of whether you make a purchase or not.
