North Country Gardening with Wildflowers
Neil Moran, horticulturist and member of the Northern Wild Plant and Seed Cooperative, has written a book that will give you all the information you need to grow and enjoy native plants in the Great Lakes region.
The book retails for $14.95 and may be purchased from the Northern Wild Plant and Seed Cooperative or the Chippewa/Luce/Mackinac Conservation District.

The Chippewa/East Mackinac Conservation District was established on May 23, 1949. In 2009 we celebrated 60 years of service to the landowners of Chippewa and Mackinac Counties. In July of 2012, the Chippewa/East Mackinac Conservation District merged with the Luce/West Mackinac Conservation District to form the Chippewa/Luce/Mackinac Conservation District. The District now includes all of Chippewa, Luce and Mackinac Counties.
The number of employees actively working on projects and programs in our District fluctuates depending on the number of federal, state, and local grants made available to the District. We have been fortunate to receive a number planning and implementation grants dealing with watersheds, water quality, soil protection, invasive plants and insects, and farming enhancements.
