The FHHP annual spring plant sale is scheduled for Saturday May 17th and Sunday May 18th from 10 am to 4 pm each day. PLEASE NOTE:The plant sale will be held at a new location this year- the south parking lot entrance to Hickory Hill Park located on Bloomington Street.The sale will be held in the pavilion - rain or shine.

New at the plant sale this year - Monarch Madness! We have purchased native milkweed plugs that will also be for sale in an effort to increase Monarch Butterfly habitat in the Iowa City area.Monarchs ONLY lay their eggs on milkweed and these native plants are rapidly declining.A lack of milkweed and other environmental stressors has lead to a huge decline in Monarch populations.

As always, we will also be accepting plant donations in the weeks leading up to the plant sale.Plants can be left in the driveway of 2607 Friendship Street or 435 Rundell Street in Iowa City.  Email friends.hh.park@gmail.com for more information.

Donations raised from the plant sale go towards park stewardship and conservation projects.
