Southwestern Oklahoma State University's Biology Club will host its spring plant sale this Thursday, April 19, 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 SWOSU Biology Club. According to faculty sponsors Dr. Andrea Holgado and Sue Ball, the club uses the money to support various community and academic activities. In the past, the 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, sweet potato vines and succulents are just a few examples of what will be available. Holgado said for attendees to keep in mind that some plants will go faster than others at the sale.
