LEHMAN TOWNSHIP, PA — Celebrate the blossoming of spring with the Pocono Environmental Education Center’s (PEEC’s) Native Plant Sale. It will be held on Saturday, May 10 and Sunday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no admission to attend the sale and many varieties of native, and deer- resistant flowers, shrubs and grasses will be available. Perennials include coneflowers, bee balm, asters, foxglove, yarrow, cranesbill, lungwort and more. PEEC members can attend a pre-sale on Friday, May 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Gardening programs continue throughout the weekend of May 17 and 18 with PEEC’s “Go Native! Gardening Weekend.” The Penn State Master Gardener volunteers will teach workshops and participants will learn low-cost, low-stress, highly effective ways to create a pollinator habitat in their existing yard, planters, and window boxes. The all-inclusive weekend includes lodging, meals, and workshop sessions for $150; day rates are also available for $5 per session.
