Audubon Annual Plant Exchange and Sale, Saturday, May 20
Audubon Annual Plant Exchange and Sale, Saturday, May 20

Jamestown, NY – Audubon Community Nature Center’s annual Plant Exchange and Sale gives gardeners an opportunity to share with others some of their extras or pick up some new plants.

Information about native plants as well as some to purchase will also be available at the event on Saturday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In the spring, many gardeners find that their yards have empty spaces in need of plants or too many volunteer plants that need new homes. Plant Exchange aims to assist by allowing gardeners to trade their extras for new items, or simply provide plants for sale for those who need them. Local nurseries donate plants, and occasionally some ephemeral spring wildflowers or fruit vines and bushes show up.

New this year is a “Why Go Native?” booth featuring local butterflies and which natives to plant for them, which natives are the best pollinator plants, and which plants will help your vegetable garden by attracting beneficial insects. There may even be some native plants for sale at that booth.

Bring cash if you want to purchase plants. If you want to trade, plants of a non-invasive variety must be in pots and in good condition. Audubon reserves the right to refuse plants or adjust the exchange rate based on species and condition. If you wish to donate but can’t make it on Saturday, you may drop plants off as early as Thursday, May 18.

This event is outdoors, so come prepared for the weather.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. To learn more, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or visit auduboncnc.org.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
