Native Plant Sale starting May 27, 2018



Our focus is on plants that attract native bees and pollinators. This year’s native plant sale will coincide with the grand opening of our new exhibit on bees!

We have a wonderful selection of attractive native plants, seeds and shrubs chosen to  enhance your ecosystem by providing food and nesting materials for our local pollinators. Native plants evolved to grow in local conditions and every plant at this sale came from a garden within 15 miles of Cable.

Plant experts will be on hand to help you find the right plants for your growing conditions.

All proceeds benefit the Cable Natural History Museum. For further information, please contact the Museum at 715-798-3890 or
