Please note that the place of Pre-order pick up and Day of Sale has changed to Marsh Haven Nature Center.
Marsh Haven is graciously allowing us to use their space this year so we can safely have a Day Of sale.
People who attend the sale will be expected to mask and distance. If you choose to attend, please respect these expectations.
Marsh Haven Nature Center is located on the north end of the Horicon Marsh, just three miles east of Waupun, Wisconsin, on State Road 49.
Learn how to create a beautiful garden with colorful flowers that attract butterflies, birds and pollinating insects, and find the plants to use. Marsh Haven Nature Center is the location for the 2021 Wildflowers for Wildlife event Saturday, May 15 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The 8th annual “Wildflowers for Wildlife: enhancing your own backyard” is sponsored by the Friends of Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center and Friends of Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. They have partnered with Taylor Creek Restoration Nurseries and Applied Ecological Services for a native plant sale that will help enhance your backyard, schoolyard, park or natural area and in turn, benefit wildlife.
Why native plants? Native landscaping restores ecosystems that once covered the Midwestern landscape but are now reduced to small parcels. Once native plants are restored, the birds, mammals, reptiles and beneficial insects return too. Native plants also enrich the soil, decrease run-off and filter pollution. In the long run, native landscaping can save money annually in maintenance costs. Native plants have evolved to thrive in a local environment, which means less watering, fertilizer and time.
Native landscapes offer hands-on opportunities for people of all ages to learn about habitats and ecosystems. A native landscape also provides the ideal setting for bird and butterfly watching, photography and nature walks.
Again, Native Plants – flowers and grasses will be available that day, $3.00 per plant – $72 for a flat of 32.
