Looking to take a little slice of Riveredge home with you? We have just the thing you’re looking for, our annual Native Plant Sale! All of the plants were grown here at Riveredge using herbaceous and woody seeds collected from our sanctuary. These plants are made possible thanks to the hard work and dedication of Bob Foss, and a dedicated group of volunteers (called the Habitat Healers) who collect seeds in the fall and tend to the seedlings throughout the winter and spring months. Because of this dedication, Riveredge is able to provide you with an opportunity to create your own little patch of Wild Wisconsin.
All of the proceeds go towards the conservation and land stewardship of Riveredge’s 379 acre wildlife sanctuary and allows us to keep the invasive species out and the native species flourishing.
To view the current list of species available for purchase go to the 2017 Native Plant Sale List.
*Plants range in price from $2.50-$7.00 per plant.
If you are interested in learning more about native vegetation, land stewardship, or helping care for our seedlings consider joining our Habitat Healers. They meet from 9:00am-Noon every Tuesday at Riveredge. This volunteer group not only helps to preserve and improve the health and biodiversity of the sanctuary, the program also recognizes several other important individual and community educational goals as well. These include:
- Providing a group learning environment that fosters Habitat Healers individual growth and the sharing of interests among its members
- Helping others, through sanctuary preservation, research, and stewardship, to understand the interconnectedness of all living things
- Serving as a regional resource for teaching effective stewardship methods by integrating elements of experimental design and analysis into Habitat Healer activities.
