Native plants provide many advantages for gardeners and the environment.

They do not require fertilizers or pesticides which saves gardeners both time and money.

In addition, their deep, fibrous root systems firmly anchor soil to help conserve water and prevent erosion. Native plants do not require watering once established, but instead provide food and shelter for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

Choose from native perennials, grasses, sedges, ferns, butterfly and rain gardens, native wildflowers, plants for woodlands, prairies and wetlands.

The sale will be held at the barns of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, across Hwy 22 from CFC Headquarters at 459 W. Hwy 22. If you have questions, call CFC at 847-382-SAVE (7283).

Citizens for Conservation’s mission is “Saving Living Space for Living Things” through protection, restoration and stewardship of land, conservation of natural resources, and education. For more information about the work they do, visit their website at CitizensforConservation.org.
