Who we are
The Native Plant Salvage Foundation has been a part of Olympia's community since 1994. We provide hands-on education to protect and conserve water resources and habitat from the South Sound prairies to the shores of Puget Sound, and serve as regional leaders in green infrastructure education. Our education, training and advocacy work give citizens a direct, hands-on opportunity to DO something to improve water quality, conserve natural resources, reduce pesticide use, and to influence peoples’ appreciation of the natural world.
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 the Native Plant Salvage by participating in special committees, outreach, and volunteering as well! Committee participation is a great way to contribute to the Native Plant Salvage while building professional skills.
