Did you know that April is Native Plant Month? We encourage you to celebrate the occasion by incorporating native plants into your landscaping! This is an easy and rewarding way to increase biodiversity, improve ecosystem health, and support pollinators in Northwest Indiana.
We are fortunate to have several native plant sales in our region each spring – some in person, and some online. This is the perfect opportunity to put our Pollinator Garden Landscaping Guide to use! Be sure to download your copy of our Guide, pick out your favorite native plants, and check out any of the sales below. Happy planting!
