Native Plant Sale Scheduled for August 27th


On Saturday, August 27th from 10am to 2pm, Chautauqua Marina and the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will be co-hosting a native plant sale, with proceeds benefitting CWC and Chautauqua Lake! A variety of native plants will be available for purchase from local vendors including Amanda’s Garden, Royal Fern Nursery, Turnbull Nursery and Hickory Hurst Farm. CWC Conservationist Carol Markham will be on hand to answer questions about native plant selection and native garden design. Admission is free, and no rsvps are needed. The event will be held rain or shine at Chautauqua Marina, located at 104 West Lake Road (Rt 394) in Mayville. Guided educational lakeside buffer walks will also be offered, weather permitting. Fall is a great time to plant, and native plants can often be difficult to find locally, making this event a great opportunity for one-stop shopping for plants that are native to our area.
