CRYSTAL LAKE – The Wildflower Preservation and Propagation Committee will hold its annual native plant sale from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday in the cafeteria at McHenry County College, 8900 Route 14.

More than 150 species will be available.

Native plants use less water; they eliminate the need for toxic chemicals; they provide food and habitat for birds and butterflies; they furnish a connection to natural history; and they are beautiful.

Only cash and check will be accepted.

Also at the sale will be organic heirloom garden vegetables and herbs from W & M LandCorp Organic Nursery and native trees and shrubs from Ohana Farms.

Those who come early can see radio and TV personality Mike Nowak as he broadcasts live from the sale. “The Mike Nowak Show” can be heard from 9 to 11 a.m. on WPCT Progressive Talk Radio, 820 AM and 92.7 FM.

The WPPC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting native species through preservation, propagation and education.
