Back To Front Page


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the Friends of Indiana Dunes will hold its annual Native Plant Sale on a pre-order basis only.

There will be no opening shopping of plant material.

The Native Plant Sale pre-order forms are available for printing at and a link to the pre-order form can also be found on the Friends of Indiana Dunes Facebook page.

For more information or assistance concerning the pre-order form, contact the Native Plant sale committee chair, Angel Gochee-Goins at (219) 707-3617 or

More than 110 native plant species are available for pre-order, including woodland flowering plants and ferns; dry, medium, and wet prairie flowering plants; grasses, shrubs, and trees. As always, there is also large selection of those hard-to-find woodlands and ferns. All varieties come in pots and most species are native to Northwest Indiana, Northeast Illinois, and Southwest Michigan.

The deadline for submitting a completed native plant sale pre-order form is April 10. Please be sure to include your phone and e-mail on the pre-order form in case further changes occur. Pre-orders will be filled in the sequence in which they are received, so please mail early.

Due to the current closure of the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center, the pickup location for the Native Plant Sale pre-orders has been changed to the Friendsí new office, at the northwest corner of Mineral Springs and Oak Hill roads in Porter (GPS 41.629814 - 87.087099). You will be assigned a specific pick-up time on Saturday, April 18, in accordance with the CDC guidelines.
