A message from our chapter president Penny Morgan

Welcome! We are glad you are joining other White Pine Chapter members in celebrating native plants. Nationally and for Idaho, April is now celebrated as Native Plant Appreciation Month.

Our White Pine Chapter Native Plant Sale May 15-18, 2024!!! Our native plant sale is hybrid, with ONLINE sale May 15-17 (when you order online, we fill orders in the order received; you will be notified when your order is filled, and you can pick it up on either May 16 or 17 at the Depot). Our sale IN PERSON is on Saturday, May 18, starting at 9am at the Depot at the Latah County Fairgrounds, 1021 Harold Ave, Moscow. For the sale IN PERSON, we will offer plants remaining from the online sale as well as new additions only available for purchase IN PERSON.

The preview for the sale will be posted starting May 5 on this home page. It is full of information and pictures that will help you choose what to order ONLINE or purchase IN-PERSON. With over 4000 plants of more than 100 different native species, you can find the plants you will love to see in your yard each day. Purchase forbs, grasses and shrubs local to this area's prairies, meadows, and forests. Plants come from local nurseries or have been grown by White Pine Chapter members. We use the income from the sale to fund grants, to do conservation projects, and to share knowledge about native plants and ecosystems. We also donate plants to local non-profit organizations for their conservation projects.

An email with ONLINE sale information will be sent to members and those who have expressed an interest before the sale. Look for an email on Wednesday, May 15, that will specify what time the sale will open and the URL for accessing the ONLINE sale. We will email active 2024 members first. Several hours later, we will email the same information to members and non-members, those who purchased from our sale last year and those who have requested to be on the list.

The list of plant species that will be available in our 2024 plant sale list will be posted on the event calendar and on this home page by Friday, May 3. It will be refreshed every few days so please check back for updates.

Incorporating native plants into your yard has huge benefits. Native pollinators will find and use them (even a pocket garden of a few plants will help). Native plants add beauty and diversity (thus delighting all our senses). In the Palouse, the once extensive native prairie, pine savanna and intermittent wetlands are now endangered, so increasing native plants and ecosystems is important. Learning about our beautiful native plants by watching them grow in our yards and restoration projects brings us all joy.
