Conserving, Restoring, and Stewarding Irreplaceable Natural Resources in Pierce County
In 2013, we are implementing year four of our five-year goals by protecting the best remaining habitats important to local birds and wildlife. This includes:
- Restoring Urban Habitats through volunteer efforts: proud member of the Green Tacoma Partnership, Morse Force, and the Adriana Hess Park Committee.
- Implementing Pierce County's Open Space Task Force recommendations to increase funds for open space conservation, including trails, parks, and natural areas, working forests and farms.
- Engaging Volunteers in citizen science.
Our Conservation Committee is currently active in these and other local conservation issues:
