Event Description
The Friends of Indiana Dunes group will host its 17th annual native plant sale at Indiana Dunes State Park from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. CDT on Saturday, April 13, at the Beach Pavilion.

Shoppers can choose from more than 100 varieties of woodland ferns and flowering plants, dry prairie plants and grasses, wet prairie flowering plants, and trees and shrubs. Most varieties are not available locally, but all species are native to Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties, and much of the rest of Indiana.

In addition to the native plant sale, books and other literature on native plants and gardening will be available for purchase.

“What better plants to start gardening and landscaping with than those that have grown to thrive here for thousands of years, helping wildlife, coping with climate, and resisting disease,” said Brad Bumgardner, interpretive naturalist for the park.

All proceeds from the sale support the Friends group and fund the interpretive services and stewardship programs throughout the Indiana Dunes.

The Beach Pavilion is at the north end of U.S. 49. Visitors are encouraged to bring cash or checks the day of the sale. Park entrance fees are waived for native plant sale visitors.

For more information, call the nature center at (219) 926-1390.
