Native Plant Sale - Order online by 10:00 PM - April 29th, 2018!

The Village of Riverwoods is a unique community nestled along the east side of the Des Plaines River where various natural communities including forests, woodlands, savanna, marsh, and prairie can be found developing over heavy clay soils and shallow aquifers. The natural communities are an integral part of the Village’s identity, a source of many benefits for its residents, and an essential green infrastructure link between rivers and forest preserves that provide habitat for numerous migrating and nesting birds, native animals, plants, fish, and insects.

Natural communities are under stress from invasive plants, canopy tree shading, surface water changes, and deer browsing.

In recent years, the Village of Riverwoods and the Riverwoods Preservation Council (RPC) have become highly aware of the changing ecological conditions and have taken steps toward improving the health of the natural communities.
Residents now have the opportunity to choose native trees and shrubs that are appropriate for the ecological community in which they live.
