RELEASE — Area residents looking to do a little landscaping or improve the environmental footprint on their property are invited to come to the Lemoine Point Conservation Area for its annual native plant sale, Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For several years, the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority, in partnership with the Friends of Lemoine Point, have managed a tree nursery at the north end of the Conservation Area to grow plant stock for various reforestation activities using seeds and cuttings from native trees and shrubs.
There are also a wide variety of wildflowers grown. Some of these trees, shrubs and wildflowers will be available for sale, with all proceeds going back to support the nursery and the tree stock being grown to support local forestry programs.
