Native Plant Swap Goes Live!

You probably knew that planting natives is good for watershed health, but did you know it could also be free? The SW Watershed Resource Center is excited to announce the launch of our newest program, the Native Plant Swap! This fall, we continually heard from you that the biggest barrier to getting involved in native gardening and environmental restoration is the costs and expertise these activities require. To help make these resources truly available for all, we got the idea to crowd-source native plants and knowledge.
