SEA Club Visits University of Washington Native Plant Nursery

EvCC’s Students for Environmental Action (SEA) Club went to the University of Washington’s (UW) Native Plant Nursery at the Center for Urban Horticulture on the UW-Seattle campus on February 22nd. This is an important program that raises and maintains thousands of native plants. These plants are often used for student led projects on environmental restoration sites.

SEA Club visited some of these projects such as the Heron Rookery; where several great blue herons’ nest, plant restoration/invasive species removal projects (often with collaboration with the Duwamish Tribe) and the Amphibian Corridor which is a project aimed at restoring habitat for amphibians such as salamanders.
