2021 Indiana Native Tree Sale Fundraiser
Every fall the SWCD brings you a wide selection of native trees and shrubs for your landscape and conservation needs. Indiana native trees are the best choice for your project because they are uniquely suited to our soils, weather, and pests AND they have unique and crucial relationships with the insects, pollinators, and birds our ecosystem depends on. Go native!
The tree sale is the SWCD's biggest annual fundraiser and all proceeds go right back in to conservation in Hamilton County.
