The Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS) is again sponsoring the annual spring native plant sale at Mercerdale Park.

Volunteers are needed at Mercerdale Park to help with the sale on Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27.

WNPS native plant steward and former plant sale chairperson Rita Moore, who also is a Mercer Island native plant garden volunteer, said, “I have found working at the plant sale is fun, and you sure get to see a lot of native plants. Friday is setup day, and the sale is Saturday. You don’t need to know anything about native plants to volunteer.”

Friday shifts for setup are 8 a.m. to noon, or 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Saturday plant sale shifts are 7:15 a.m. to 8 a.m., 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., noon to 4 p.m., or 4 p.m. until done (at about 5 p.m.).

To volunteer, email Info@wnps.org or call 206-527-3210.
