Wheaton has an opportunity to “grow native” with the return of the Native Plant Sale from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 23, 2022, at the City’s Public Works Storage Yard, 820 W. Liberty Drive. This event is provided through the partnership of the City's Environmental Improvement Commission, City of Wheaton and Wheaton Park District to encourage the community to choose eco-friendly plants for their landscapes.
The list of plants that will be sold is available through the Wheaton Park District’s website.
Please note that cash will not be accepted; you must pay by credit card or check.
Native plants such as flowers, shrubs, trees and grasses sold are all varieties native to northern Illinois, which make them drought-resistant and hardy choices for our climate.
You can also pre-order a rain barrel in cooperation with the Conservation Foundation, and pick it up at the event. Visit https://upcycle-products.com/wheaton-park-district/ to pre-order your rain barrel. Mail-in orders must be received by April 14.
