Churchville Nature Center
Annual Native Wildflower Sale
Join the Churchville Nature Center for one of our longest running yearly fundraisers as we promote native wildlife through gardening! Each year the nature center staff and volunteers get together roughly one hundred species of native plants that helps preserve the diversity of our local ecosystems and spread food sources for pollinators and other wildlife.
The sale event is held each year on the last weekend of April and the first weekend of May. Staff and volunteers are on hand to guide customers and to direct them to the right plants for their yards. While plants are on sale all summer, supplies are limited so come early to get the plants your plants!

Why Buy From Us?
A Way to Help Diversity and Wildlife Conservation
Churchville Nature Center's wildflower sale is a great way for home owners and companies to promote local pollinators and wildlife through the planting of natural nectar sources. Churchville specializes in perennial wildflowers that will bring butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and more to your home each year.
While ornamental plants can be beautiful and have their own benefits, they usually do not provide native wildlife with needed food sources. In the worst of situations, non-native plants can do more harm than good by escaping yards and competing with our important native plant life. It is important to Churchville that we offer an alternative to the use of those ornamentals.
Supporting the Non-Profit
The annual sale is the largest fundraiser the nature center holds each year in support of its non-profit, the Friends of Churchville Nature Center. Purchases made at the annual sale not only benefit the environment by ensuring the spread of native flora, but proceeds go to supporting the center's programming, operation and public outreach.
No Pesticides or Chemicals
Since we specialize in pollinator friendly plants, we never use pesticides. This prevents any potential harm on bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects due to lingering residual chemicals. Overall, we do not treat our plants with any chemicals relying on natural practices to grow them.
