The Penn State Extension Master Watershed Steward Program will be accepting pre-orders for native shrubs and trees until Aug. 31 as a fundraiser.

The orders can be picked up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 1 at the Lebanon County Extension office, located at 2120 Cornwall Road adjacent to the Lebanon Valley Exposition Center & Fairgrounds.

There are 28 tree and shrub varieties available. To browse the available options and make a purchase, visit the sale website.

“There is something truly magical that happens when you start adding native species to the landscape,” said Leah Zerbe, a nature columnist and Master Watershed Steward, in a press release about the sale. “It’s one of the top ways to invite more birds, butterflies and native bee species to your yard.”

“If you plant it, they will come!”
