 We are using Riverside Native Trees and Natives in Harmony for our native tree and plant sale. Buying and planting native trees and shrubs is a great way to provide quality habitat for the birds, butterflies, moths and other wildlife on the islands. We are promoting the planting of native trees and shrubs because our native animals are adapted to feeding on these plants and using them for shelter. By planting native species you are making your land more attractive to birds, bees, butterflies, moths and a host of other desirable species. This fundraiser will be used to support the LEIC land preservation and restoration programs!

Trees: All native trees and shrubs for sale are sold in 3 gallon containers in two sizes. The varieties available are Swamp White Oak, Bur Oak, Chinkapin Oak, Basswood, Common Hackberry, and Silver Maple. Shrubs offered are Silky Dogwood, Hoptree, Buttonbush, Pasture and Swamp Rose, and Common Elderberry. All these trees and shrubs are native to the islands and will thrive in this environment. They have been grown from Ohio seed stock by Riverside Native Trees in Delaware, Ohio.

Plants: LEIC is also selling over 30 varieties of native perennial plants and flowers from Natives in Harmony from Marengo, Ohio. An order form is attached. Beautify your yard and support the Conservancy!

Orders may be placed until May 1 and we will arrange a pick up on the island. For those on Middle Bass who wish to order, a pick up on Middle Bass will be set up as well
