About the Steward Program in Snohomish County

History

Snohomish Native Plant Stewardship Program began in 2000 with additional 5 classes offered between 2000 and 2008. Funding for the Snohomish Native Plant Stewardship Program has been made possible by the generous support of Snohomish County Surface Water Management. A total of 142 stewards have graduated from the program representing local communities in Snohomish and some neighboring counties.

Stewards have been offered a number of community-based projects working with local landowners, Friends of groups and schools to restore the habitat and ecological functions vital to improving water quality, stormwater management and salmon-bearing streams throughout the County. Activities range from overseeing and planting native vegetation at restoration sites, removing invasive weeds and monitoring vegetation. Some stewards have worked directly with school children volunteering in the restoration of streamside habitats and other have volunteered in the County's native plant nursery to propagate and care for native plants used in restoration projects.
