Washington Native Plant Society Provides Funding for Native Plant Signage in Olympia

Eagle Scout Josh Lobe from Boy Scout Troop 48 received a $595.00 grant from the Washington Native Plant Society to support his 2009 Eagle Scout Project. The project objective was the installation of native plant signage along the Capitol Lake Interpretive Center Trail in Olympia, Washington.

With the support of Boy Scout Troop 48 and other members of the community, 84 native plant markers were installed. Each 5”x7” sign include a color picture and description of each plant and are mounted on recycled guardrail posts protected by clear acrylic to guard against vandalism.

In addition to the grant received from WNPS, Josh worked diligently to raise funds, gather materials and donations from local businesses and associations.

This project will benefit the communities of Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia and the many visitors to the trail to help teach about Washington’s native plants. The Capitol Lake Interpretive Center Trail is located at the south end of Capitol Lake and is part of the State Capitol Campus.
