Native Plant Salvage Foundation is currently seeking individuals with a passion for digging-in to support our work in the community.

We are especially eager for folks who have experience with: non-profit/organizational management; fundraising or grant-writing; event organization; or plant nursery management. If you are interested, please submit the online form below.

As a member of the Native Plant Salvage’s Board of Directors, you have an opportunity to gain valuable experience working in a nonprofit organization. Our dedicated Board Members’ energy and passion for the organization truly shapes and strengthens the impact that we make, from our South Sound communities to the greater Salish Sea ecosystem.


Board Members commit to a minimum of one year on the board, and are responsible for collectively making high-level decisions about finances, governance, policy, and future projects. In general, members can expect to contribute between 3 – 12 hours per month on basic Board member duties. Depending on your personal capacity, you can contribute more time to further benefit NPSF by joining the Nursery leadership team, participating in special committees, outreach, and volunteering as well! Committee participation is a great way to contribute to NPSF while building professional skills.

Who we are

The Native Plant Salvage Foundation has been a part of Thurston County's community since 2000, supporting the efforts of the Native Plant Salvage Project, established in 1994 as part of WSU Extension's water resources/habitat program. We provide hands-on education to protect and conserve water resources and habitat from the South Sound prairies to the shores of Salish Sea, and serve as regional leaders in green infrastructure education, use of native plants in the landscape, and restoration of critical areas. Our trainings and project implementation give citizens a direct, hands-on opportunity to DO something to improve water quality, conserve natural resources, and to influence peoples’ appreciation of the natural world.

Contact us today! Please indicate your interest by filling out the form below. Once your information is submitted, a current board member will follow up with you directly. New members will be confirmed during our annual meeting, which will be held on June 11, 2019.
