Today from 9 AM – 5 PM is the last day of the Dugdemona Soil & Water Conservation District’s (DSWCD) Annual Conservation Tree & Shrub Sale. The sale is located on Hwy 167 South next to the old Sonic location in Winnfield, LA.
The District Tree and Shrub Sale is DSWCD’s largest fund-raising event of the year. All donations and proceeds from this event directly benefit our community by helping sponsor area projects such as Feral Hog Control Program, Forestry Awareness, and Restoration of Wildlife Habitats.
This year’s sale will include many different types of trees and shrubs including: fruit trees (apple, peach, pear, plum, blackberry, avocado and more), satsuma trees, lemon trees, Kimberly queen fern, dogwoods, sweet olives, native azaleas, Jane magnolia, mayhaw and many more. If you are looking for something specific not listed here you can call (318) 628-4438 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Forestry students from CLTCC will be on hand to help at this year’s sale.
Without sponsors who recognize the importance of investing in conservation, education of our students and improving our communities, this event and events like it would not be possible. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor contact DSWCD at (318)628-4438 or email@example.com. All sponsors will be listed on the District Facebook Page: Dugdemona SWCD, flyers, newspaper releases, and brochures. Levels of sponsorship are Platinum Sponsor $350, Gold Sponsor $250, Silver Sponsor $150, and Bronze Sponsor $100.
