Here are some of the projects/services that we are currently involved with:

Speakers’ Bureau - we maintain a list of speakers willing to present talks on Washington Native Plant topics to outside groups- i.e. garden clubs, community organizations, etc.    In support of these talks, we maintain resource materials for speakers to use including prepared talks with PowerPoint slides on portable media.  These binders can be checked out by contacting the committee chair at the above address.   

Native Plant Resource Boxes for Educators - we are in the process of producing resource kits that can be used by educators to conduct native plant lessons in various education settings- i.e. schools, parks, camps.  They will be available to check-out in the near future.   [PDF] List of resource box contents for Level 1 and Level 2

Online Educational Materials - A catalog on PlantSteward.com lists educational presentations, brochures, bulletins, worksheets, and native plant lists that can be freely downloaded from that site. These materials provide educational snapshots as well as some full length presentations of various native plant related topics.  The brochures and bulletin are suitable for handouts at environmental events and several of the presentations have speaker notes to enhance their usability. 

Native Tree Lesson Plan - we are working to develop a lesson plan that can be used by educators which uses Native Trees as a model for multi-disciplinary learning objectives. 

“Plant of the Month” -  a feature at each chapter meeting devoted to learning about a particular plant or genus.  Have an idea, suggestion or a plan for this segment?  Contact the committee at the above address.
