First, thanks to everyone who responded to our pick-up only, socially-distant plant sale in 2020. We were expecting a smaller sale given the coronavirus, but your response was overwhelming and 2020 was by far our biggest to date. THANK YOU.
We have six brand new species this year - whorled milkweed, rose sedge, arrow-leaved aster, elm-leaved goldenrod, rose pink and silky dogwood - as well as the return of several favorites that weren't available last year.
We're returning in-person shopping for 2021! We'll provide additional space between plants to ensure social distancing, and ask everyone - staff, volunteers and shoppers - to wear a mask. All indoor facilities including restrooms remain closed.
This year, we are limiting pre-orders to Friends of MEEC only. This is an additional benefit of membership and ensures you get the species you need for your garden! Members also receive access to special events, discounts on program registrations and benefits at a network of nature centers across North America. Most importantly, you join a community of people who help us achieve our mission of restoring the land. Through June, every donation and membership contribution, including renewals, will be matched up to $20,000 thanks to a generous anonymous donor. To join, use the order form or click here. We are grateful for your support!
To give our nursery volunteers time to reserve your plants, we need to have your pre-order by Friday, June 11 to ensure pickup on Saturday, June 26. If you're a member who can't make the sale, we will happily arrange alternate pick-up options.

We look forward - finally - to seeing many of you on the 26th! Our native plant sale is our most important fundraiser, and each sale is actually a non-exempt donation to our habitat restoration work, both here at Mount St. John and around the region. You can also help by sharing this catalog, directing people who may be interested to our website (https://meec.center) and sharing the sale on social media. If you are involved in an organization that can distribute our catalogs, we'll be happy to supply some!
