2008 Native Plant Stewards Partner with Snohomish County and the City of Everett

The WNPS Native Plant Stewardship Program in Snohomish County partnered with the County's Surface Water Management Division. This division, inside the Public Works Department manages the county's streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands to protect water quality,and rehabilitate stream and drainage corridors for proper flow, aesthetics and to benefit fish.

WNPS Native Plant Stewards support Snohomish County's efforts by working in Native Growth Protection Areas to restore habitat and educate homeowners about the value of these areas. Stewards have monitored riparian restoration sites in the county, and performed site assessments along the north and south forks of the Stillaguamish River.

Our Native Plant Stewardship Program also partnered with the City of Everett to help restore Forest Park, the city's largest and oldest park. This forested and hilly park is loved by the city's residents. Native Plant Stewards work just inside the east entrance of the park to restore the urban forest. Their work promotes the native character of the forest site and helps to restore natural forest processes.

After completing the rigorous ten week training program in the Spring of 2008, Stewards were organized into teams to develop project management plans for six major projects. They are using what they learned in the course to thoughtfully plan and implement their projects over the next year.
