The Columbia Basin Chapter

Since 1997, our chapter has been working to preserve our native flora and provide information to the public. Recent conservation/restoration efforts in the Tri-Cities include planting and seeding at Badger Mountain Preserve (Friends of Badger Mountain), planting and signage at the natural area in Leslie Groves North, and restoration at Horn Rapids County Park near Richland. In Walla Walla, efforts are focused on native plant containers in the downtown gardens, a native plant demonstration garden at the Humane Society, and developing and publishing a wildflower and trailside native plant guide.
