WNPS Stewards

 

Native Plant Stewards and the Green Tacoma Partnership

The WNPS' Native Plant Stewardship Program partnered with the Green Tacoma Partnership to implement a Natural Areas Stewardship Training in 2009. Graduates of the ten-week training program worked to restore selected sites in Tacoma and Pierce County.

After completing the rigorous and popular training where participants learn about Western Washington native plant communities, native plant identification and habitat restoration; graduates return the value of this training and use what they have learned to restore project sites.

Teams of Stewards designed and implemented 1-acre restoration management plans for restoration areas in selected open spaces in the City of Tacoma. Their efforts are helping to restore natural areas within the city of Tacoma and enhance the work of the Green Tacoma Partnership to develop viable and healthy natural spaces sustained by community involvement.

Funding for this work was provided by a grant from The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation utilizing Pierce Conservation District Funds.
