The Conservation Committee of the Koma Kulshan Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society advocates for the conservation of native plants, native plant habitats, and associated native fauna, such as pollinators. Where appropriate, the Committee partners with local government agencies, tribes, and other conservation groups to accomplish project goals.
Current Committee projects include the study and protection of balds, public education on urban native plant gardens that support native pollinators, and coordination with local farms to increase plantings of pollinator friendly native plant hedgerows.
Other future Committee responsibilities may include writing comment letters in response to proposed public actions, developing legislative proposals, providing support for conservation initiatives of partners, and helping identify stewardship projects.
