The Natchitoches Soil and Water Conservation District Annual Tree and Shrub Sale will be held on March 13-15 from 9 am – 5 pm daily on the vacant lot on the corner of Saint Clair Avenue and Williams Avenue. Brandy Hinds, the District Administrative Assistant and Red River Resource Unit Earth Team Coordinator of the NSWCD, said the proceeds will assist in the outreach and education of the community to provide conservation education to landowners. It’s for a worthy cause and over 500 people are expected to attend during the three-day event. Saplings and shrubs are limited, so be sure to get there early. A wide variety of plants will be available including native plants, fruit trees, Irises and Leyland Cypresses, which are new to the sale this year.
