Native plant sale returns

The 2023 Plant sale fundraiser had a great turnout. Be sure to attend this year’s event on Sat., May 18.

IOSCO COUNTY- Back again by popular demand, the Friends of Tawas Point Lighthouse and State Park Native Plant Sale fundraiser will be held at the Tawas Point Lighthouse.  See, learn, and buy native plants for your home or business at this returning event on the Lighthouse Lawn on Saturday, May 18.  The event begins promptly at 9 a.m. and is scheduled until Noon, or until plant supplies are gone.  There will be no early sales available. 

All plants will be Michigan grown and most are Michigan genotypes.  Most plants will be 2″ or 2 1/2″ pots priced at $4 and $6 per pot, and some quart pots will be available at $10 per pot.  There will be a few ferns and shrubs in gallon pots priced separately. Payment may be made by cash, check, or credit cards via PayPal.  

Proceeds will help fund the ongoing Native Plant Projects and other special projects at Tawas Point State Park and Lighthouse.  Friends Board member, Gloria Kershaw, continues to volunteer to do restoration projects near the lighthouse that began in 2017.   

Sunrise Side Master Gardeners will also be present to answer your questions and help with your selections.  A list of plants, subject to availability, will be listed on The Friends of Tawas Point Lighthouse Facebook page and on the website at www.tawaslighthousefriends.com.
