Underwood Conservation District hosts Native Plant Sale

WHITE SALMON — Underwood Conservation District’s 2024 Native Plant Sale is here!

The native plant sale is one way UCD encourages the restoration of natural habitats and promotes native species, said a press release, and makes for a low-cost way for property owners in Skamania and western Klickitat Counties to obtain native trees and shrubs. Last year, UCD’s Native Plant Sale helped to get more than 20,000 native plants in the ground.

UCD’s plant sale includes a variety of species — flowering shrubs that will attract beneficial insects to your garden; fire- and drought-resistant species; large trees that provide shade year round to your home or creek; and hardwoods to bring vibrant colors each fall.

“Planting native trees and shrubs serves a number of purposes including reforestation, erosion control, improving bird and wildlife habitat, visual buffers, and stream enhancement — all while adding beauty and color to the landscape,” said the press release.
