About Native Plants

We Love Native Species! 

Serviceberry is one of the earliest understory trees to flower in the forests of northern lower Michigan.
  • Native plants are great for our wildlife, soils, and local climate conditions!
  • They are great for any landscape and are highly tolerant to our year-round weather conditions.
  • Native plants can adapt to poor quality soils because of their extensive root systems.
  • They are drought tolerant and require less maintenance.
  • Native plants also provide wildlife benefits like providing food and places to live
  • The Missaukee Conservation District is dedicated to offering species adapted to our region.

  • Our goal is to educate about the importance of native plants and their connection to pollinators and native wildlife.

  • We also provide opportunities for the public to purchase native plants locally and for affordable prices.

  • Our Tree Seedling Sale is the last weekend in April

    The annual tree seedling sale may contain a few non-native species. As partners of North Country Invasive Species Management Area (NCCISMA) we do not offer non-native plants that are considered invasive.
  • This year we will have a Spring Native Plant Sale during our Seedling Sale (Order Native Plants By May 28, 2020 and Pick-Up is June 5, 2020) and Fall Native Plant Sale on Sept 26, 2020
