Sixth Annual Native Plant Sale

Berkshire Wildlife Sanctuaries announces its Sixth Annual Native Plant Sale, Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, 472 W. Mountain Rd., Lenox, MA, on June 3-5, at from 9 am to 4 pm, rain or shine.

The sale of nursery-grown wildflowers, ferns, trees, and shrubs will benefit programs at Pleasant Valley as well as Canoe Meadows in Pittsfield. Joseph Strauch, author of "Wildflowers of the Berkshire & Taconic Hills", will offer gardening recommendations and advice.

Monica Fadding of Marconica Inc. will present a free workshop at 1 pm on Friday and Saturday, "Five Steps to a Beautiful Natural Woodland". Participants will learn to enhance special places on their property-a fallen log, large rock, etc.-by identifying and removing invasives and encouraging Berkshire wildflowers. Please sign up in advance.

More than seventy-five species of plants for all garden conditions are for sale, including wild ginger, lady's slipper, columbine, and fringed gentian. Admission to the sale is free and Mass Audubon members receive a 10% discount on their purchases.

Please call 413-637-0320 for further information.
