Native Plant Appreciation Month gives us a springtime opportunity to enjoy Washington State’s amazing flora. We can take a look at all the work that governmental agencies, non-profit groups, and environmental organizations are doing to protect native plant species and restore native plant habitats. This is a great time to participate in everything from talks, walks, hikes, garden tours, and visits to our natural areas. Learn how invasive species harm native plants and ecosystems and we can get actively involved combating that threat and helping with habitat restoration projects. Take a closer look at how our native plant ecosystems protect water quality and how they provide homes for birds, fish, and other animals. It’s a time to celebrate Washington’s native floral abundance, its amazing biodiversity, and all the good work being done to protect and preserve it.
WNPS will post events from around the state, including partner activities with a focus on native plants and habitats, organization member activities, chapter programs, community earth day celebrations that focus on restoration or understanding Washington’s native flora.
