A collection of native plant palettes for use in a variety of planting projects, in addition to some of our most common invasive plants. This can be a guide for beginners just learning to identify Northwest plants, and a reference for those seeking plants for specific locations.
Materials include hands-on activities, native plant identification cards, weed identification cards, and informational posters.
