Purge Your Spurge & Annual Plant Sale

Got myrtle spurge? Get rid of it!

It’s time to Purge Your Spurge!
Saturday, May 3
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
REI (3285 E 3300 S)

Participate in a Purge your Spurge community weed pull, and receive a voucher good for 5 free native plants and 2 raffle tickets. Enter to win awesome prizes from our donors.

This year’s donations are from: Alta Ski Area, Snowbird, Black Diamond Equipment, Ace Hardware, Christy Sports, and Beans and Brews.

This nasty non-native weed has invaded our foothills and canyons. Purge spurge from your garden, or join us for a community weed pull to make an even bigger dent in the invasion.

Bag up your spurge, bring it down to the Salt Lake REI, and get free plants.

Need more plants? Don’t forget to stock up and support a good cause by purchasing from our waterwise plant sale! We’ll have a great selection of low cost perennials and grasses again this year.
