RESTORATION DIRECTORY IN THE WORKS

As the public has become more concerned about the environment there has been an increased interest in the preservation and restoration of native plant communities. Native plants are valued for their economic, ecological, and aesthetic benefits as well as a growing societal belief in their intrinsic value as living species.

Along with the growing belief in the value of native plants there has also been a growing demand for native plants and seeds, both for restoration projects and for use in landscaping. Along with this demand has come a need for a nationwide directory that can help the people in search of native plants and seeds find the suppliers who can provide them.

Recognizing this need, the Environmental Protection Agency is funding the development of a native plant and seed supplier directory. Four organizations dedicated to the preservation and restoration of native plants are working together with the EPA to develop the directory. They are the University of Washington's Center for Urban Horticulture, the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, the Plant Conservation Alliance, and the Society for Ecological Restoration. When completed, the directory will be available on the web at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center's website.

At this time we are not accepting surveys for our directory.

Comments, suggestions, and questions about the website should be directed to the webmaster.
