Grab your warm winter gear and join WSU’s Native Plant Salvage Project for an exhilarating morning of salvaging small native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants from forthcoming development sites slated for clearing. Community volunteers work under WSU staff’s direction to recover small plants that are used for revegetation projects to benefit water quality and habitat. The work is done during winter months when plants are dormant and more likely to transplant successfully.
Plant salvage activity occurs between 9:30 a.m. and noon, when hot lunch is served to volunteers. After lunch, volunteers transfer plants to the native plant nursery in west Olympia and put plants in pots until about 3:30 p.m. Events will occur on February 21, March 5 and 13.
No prior experience is necessary, as volunteers are trained on site.

As I lengthen my spine and twist to look up toward the sky, I am deeply connected to all that surrounds me. I am in the moment, simultaneously grounded and infinitely expansive. I haven’t a worry in the world. Moments like this, of mindfulness and connection, keep me coming back to my yoga mat time
