The National Conservation Commission will open its doors to the public for a plant sale at its Codrington, St. Michael, headquarters, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; and the day will climax with a Coastal Zone Management Unit (CZMU) beach walk, from Ragged Point, St. Philip, to Conset Bay, St. John.??
