Thank you for making the 2022 Marion SWCD Native Plant Sale a HUGE success. The 2023 Native Plant Sale will open in January of 2023.

Our native plant sale is a fundraiser that supports the Stan Vistica Memorial Scholarship. Profits from the native plant sale help fund scholarships for two students from Marion County studying Natural Resources or Agriculture at an Oregon College or University. The scholarship was established in 2006 and is named after an outstanding friend, conservationist, and former Board Member, Stan Vistica. The scholarship is administered through the Office of Student Access and Completion: www.oregonstudentaid.gov.
Using native plants in your landscape helps support and enhance local environments and habitat for wildlife, birds and pollinators. Native plants are a great benefit to any landscape because they require minimal or no water once they are established, they rarely require additional fertilizers or pesticides, native plants increase the biodiversity of an area and they are beautiful!
