2017 Native Plant Sale

The City of Wheaton, Wheaton Environmental Improvement Commission, and the Wheaton Park District encourage residents to plant native plants in future landscape projects. Native plants are adapted to the soils and climate of our area. They’re beneficial because they don’t require irrigation or fertilizer, are resistant to drought and insects, will not harm or degrade native ecosystems, and are beautiful and interesting.

Date: April 29, 2017  ( 8:30am – 12:00pm)

Location: Public Works Building at 821 W. Liberty Drive Wheaton, IL 60187

Payment must be made by cash or check.
