Supplies are limited and orders will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis. Sales are open to only MN/MG from April 10-July 6. Sales are open to everyone, including the public, after July 6.
ECIMN will host a program on Aug 10 at 6:30pm at the UI Auditorium, 801 N Country Fair Drive focused on native trees and shrubs. If you have questions about any of these particular plants, this program is for you.
