The Wayne Conservation District accepts orders for its annual Seedling Sale through March 27. The sale features seedlings and transplants of a variety of native trees, shrubs and ornamentals, many of which are favored by wildlife.This year’s offering includes two seed mixes – one to attract and sustain pollinating insects like honeybees and butterflies and the other to provide food and shelter for wildlife like turkey and deer. The mixes are made up of native seeds and can be purchased by the ounce for small areas and by the pound for larger plots.
2020 Maple Tour & Open House
The sweet steam of the sugar house beckons to you on the 2020 Self-Guided Maple Tour on Saturday and Sunday, March 21 and 22. On those days from 10 am to 4 pm, eight local maple producers demonstrate how the sap from the trees boils down to that delicious treat.
For those who want the fun of the tour but not the hassle of navigating around the county, the Conservation District is offering a bus tour on both Saturday & Sunday. Starting from the Wayne County Park Street Complex, 648 Park Street, in Honesdale, the bus will depart at 8 am and return before 3 pm. The group will visit a handful of sugar houses and learn about the history and process of making maple syrup. The bus trip also includes a delicious breakfast featuring real, local maple syrup.Learn More
