The Lake Erie Islands Chapter of the Black Swamp Conservancy (LEIC-BSC) is now taking orders for native trees and plants to raise money for our land protection and educational programs.
Trees: All native trees for sale are sold in 3 gallon containers and range from $25 (1-2’ tall) to $40 each (3-6’ tall). The varieties available are Swamp White Oak, Bur Oak, Chinquapin Oak, Red Oak, Kentucky Coffee Tree, Hophornbeam, Silver Maple, Sugar Maple, Hoptree, and Boxelder. All these trees are native to the islands and will thrive in this environment. They have been grown from Ohio seed stock by Riverside Trees in Delaware, Ohio.
Plants: LEIC-BSC is also selling over 40 varieties of native perennial plants and flowers from the Naturally Native Nursery in Bowling Green, Ohio. An order form is available at www.lakeerieislandsbsc.com. In addition, all families of students at Put-in-Bay School will receive order information sent home with their child.
Beautify your yard and support the Conservancy!
