Wild Plant Rescue

Wild Plant Rescue aims to save native plants and protect ecological diversity in our region by rescuing species that would otherwise be destroyed from ongoing development. The plants will then be housed at a number of schools and local organizations to be used as educational material before being used in restoration projects or sold to further fund our program!

We need volunteers and rescue sites! 

Who should participate:

  • Hikers, nature lovers, botanists, naturalists, landscapers, and more!

Benefits to participants:

  • Free Native Plants*
  • Learn plant identification tips for common native plants
  • *Reasonable amount of plants + must have appropriate habitat available

Contact Rosy at rosy@mywaterways with any questions and for more information, or if you know of a potential WPR site.
