MFP’s 2nd ANNUAL NATIVE PLANT SALE
Welcome to the landing page for Montana Freshwater Partners 2nd Annual Native Plant Sale fundraiser. Proceeds from this sale support our nonprofit’s mission to restore, protect and enhance Montana’s rivers and wetlands. Please take a minute to review the below information before heading to our online store to order your native plants and thank you for your support!
Go wild with native plants!
Through a partnership with Great Bear Native Plants in Hamilton, MFP has selected plants that can be found along our local rivers, wildflower meadows, and prairie grasslands. Why native plants? Because native plants are adapted to our local weather, soil and water conditions. Native plants also provide important shelter and food sources for wildlife and pollinators.
