Plant native plants this year! You don't need a fortune to add native plants to your landscapes and gardens, thanks to these free native plant swaps put on by Front Range Wild Ones, People and Pollinators, Colorado Native Plant Society and other partners.
The aim with these “pay it forward” native plant swap events is to get more ecologically valuable plants into the front range landscapes and build pollinator corridors. We’d especially like to get more native plants in the yards and gardens (and outdoor pots) of residents in underserved communities with limited access to plants. Whether you are giving or receiving native plants, all are welcome to participate – if you have nothing to swap, don't worry, you don't need to bring a plant to swap in order to adopt plants. These are free and open to the public, so all are welcome.
