Plant Salvage Alliance was created in 2003 to serve
citizens and restoration projects occurring in the
Puget Sound basin. Barring frozen soil, the
NPSA has, until 2012, orchestrated the sweat equity
of volunteers to dig for beneficial plants before
bulldozers arrive for development.

and values of native plants. Plants logs, moss
and duff salvaged by NPSA volunteers have all been
utilized in habitat regional restoration projects
and education displays; while others have used their
salvaged plants in commercial and residential

Nearly 500 unique volunteers
are making use of native plants from this site for
restoration projects occurring throughout King and
Pierce Counties, and elsewhere too. Home owning
event participants are also experiencing the numerous benefits related to
the use of native plants - benefits that reach well
beyond the boundaries of their properties, but which
create community for people and wildlife alike.
