What's that plant? Is it a weed? Do you wonder at the plants you see in your neighborhood or while hiking in Washington's forests and meadows? Would you like to learn about low-maintenance, beautiful native plants that attract wildlife, or join tours through protected natural areas?
Native Plant Appreciation Week 2018, April 22 through April 28 is a celebration of Washington's over 3000 native species, from desert plants to rain forest giants. With over 100 events throughout the State, everybody can enjoy, share and learn about Washington's splendid diversity.
Committees are now being formed to make the 2018 Native Plant Appreciation Week a reality. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Elizabeth Gage, WNPS Office and Volunteer Coordinator, at or 206-527-3210.
