Vendors will show their love of nature with native plants, natural landscaping bark and wood chips, bird feeding products, bird friendly shrubs and shade trees, recycled and rustic bird houses, container gardens to attract birds, gardening and tree care and birding tips, garden ornamentals, and free organic seed packets.
ABC honors Algoma’s recognition as a Tree City USA and Bird City Wisconsin by celebrating International Migratory Bird Day and Arbor Day and supporting bird appreciation and the importance of providing birds with a safe habitat. ABC is a project of the Bird City Algoma and Algoma Tree Management Committee. For more information visit birdcityalgoma.com or find Bird City Algoma on Facebook.
