King County Native Plant Salvage Program

King County Native Plant Salvage Program

Save our native plants!

Age group: All ages
Geographic area: King County

Dig in with Native Plant Salvage and remove plants from future construction sites. These native plants are crucial to maintaining our unique northwest ecosystem and need your protection. Help keep our native species alive and well by digging them out of harm's way and replanting them in salmon restoration project grounds. This project not only saves the plant species, but helps our salmon as well! Plant salvage is a great task for a group of students. The Native Plant Salvage program can accommodate school groups on weekdays. Just call and tell them you want to help save your native plants.
