Feb. 5 seedling sale, local woods fair planned for Linn fairgrounds

Dec 5, 2021 | Author: Bonnie Marshall, 2022 Seedling Sale Chairman | Editor: Andrew Bradford

27th annual scholarship fundraiser offers choice stock in small lots; pre-orders urged due to limits

We are really looking forward to hosting our annual seedling sale in person and anticipate having our Local Woods Fair join us again in the Santiam Building! We will follow current COVID-19 guidelines in a safe and pleasant environment. With that in mind, please be flexible and understanding if we need to make changes. We will work diligently to keep you informed via email (or phone call) if there are major changes. Because of the increasing popularity of our sale, and the uncertainty of the times, we strongly encourage everyone to pre-order early. There is a great selection of bareroot and plug seedlings this year, most of them natives. We are offering conifers, deciduous trees and shrubs, evergreen shrubs, and several native wildflowers to help meet your planting needs.

Proceeds from our sale continue to fund the chapter’s forestry-related college scholarships, 4-H scholarships and other programs that promote forest and natural resource education. In 2021, we awarded $7600 to our outstanding college scholars and 4-H students!

The Local Woods Fair, held in conjunction with our seedling sale, is hoping to return with vendors selling wood-related products and organizations willing to talk about resources they have available, ways to help manage your woodland property, or just share their knowledge. Again, please be flexible with us if we need to make changes.

Our preorder deadline is January 22, 2022.
