Mark your calendar, and save some space in the garden, for the annual Friends of Baltimore Woods Native Plant Sale.
The fundraising event takes place on Saturday, March 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the St. Johns public plaza, at the east end of the St. Johns Bridge in Portland.
The sale is a benefit for the Friends of Baltimore Woods, a nonprofit that works to preserve the area its named after in North Portland. The 30-acre Baltimore Woods Connectivity Corridor fills a gap in the Willamette Greenway and the regional 40-mile loop of bicycling and walking trails, between Cathedral and Pier parks.
Native plants for sale are grown by Bosky Dell Natives and the Scappoose Bay Watershed Council. Plants will be suitable for native oak woodlands and oak meadows, the ecosystems in the Baltimore Woods Corridor.
There will be informational exhibits and tables about the nonprofit, about the Backyard Habitat Program, and the Native Plant Society of Oregon.
