NW Native Plant Guide Acknowledgements
The text of this site originally appeared as a booklet written and edited by Michael Leigh for the WSU Cooperative Extension/Thurston County. With permission, that document drew heavily on three publications put out by the King County Surface Water Management Division:
- Northwest Native Plants: Identification and Propagation forRevegetation & Restoration Projects
- Noxious Weeds: A Guide to Invasive Non-Native Plants
- Aquatic Plants: Identification, Benefits, and Management
We would like to continue the original booklet's thanks to King County for permission to use and extensively revise these publications for this guide. We also wish to express our gratitude to Mary Jo Buza, for permission to use an excerpt from her Masters in Environmental Science thesis as the basis of our section on landscaping using native plant associations.
This site could not have been accomplished without numerous people, whom we wish to thank: Clayton Antieau (formerly of WSU Cooperative Extension/Jefferson County); John Brown, Jr. (Judd Creek Wetland and Native Plant Nursery, Vashon); Susan Buis (Sound Native Plants and Sound Ecological Services, Olympia); Laura Chan (Pierce County Master Gardener Volunteer); Mary Fries (Washington Native Plant Society); Kathy Hamel and Jenifer Parsons (Washington Department of Ecology, Olympia); Kathleen Duncan, WSU, Cooperative Extension Information Services; Andrew Hinds and Sharon Maier (WSU Cooperative Extension/Pierce County); and Kathleen Bucher, Sharon Martin, Ernie Paul, and Bob Simmons (WSU Cooperative Extension/Thurston County).
Several of these people need to be singled out for particular thanks: Clayton Antieau, John Brown, Jr., Susan Buis, and Jenifer Parsons all made substantial contributions to the text of this document; Ernie Paul coordinated development, printing and distribution of the printed booklet and assisted with web site development. Laura Chan formatted the document, and Andrew Hinds the photographs, for use on the WWW. Sharon Maier coordinated the development of the NW Native Plant Guide WWW site.
