The public is invited.

Southwestern Oklahoma State University's Biology Club will host its fall plant sale this Thursday, November 10, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center lobby on the Weatherford campus. The public is invited.

The plant sale is the primary fundraiser for the biology club. According to faculty sponsors, Dr. Andrea Holgado and Sue Ball, the biology club uses the money to support various community and academic activities. In the past, the biology club has supported Relay for Life and Angel Tree, helped fund a scholarship within the department, and pay registration fees to send biology students to scientific meetings across the nation.

The club’s students, under the supervision of Dr. Bill Seibert, have propagated and maintained the plants throughout the semester.

The sale will feature both small and large sizes at very reasonable rates.  Various cacti, ivy, ferns, geraniums, and succulents are just a few examples of what will be available.  Some plants will go faster than others, and Holgado said the club can reserve plants for students until 4 p.m. and they can retrieve them after their day’s classes.
