Native Plant Nursery

LCFEG maintains two native plant nursery sites that serve as a valuable educational tool as well as a beneficial way to raise native plants for local salmon habitat restoration projects. Each nursery has the capability to host 20,000 native plants! 

Sites

CASEE 

Our newest nursery is located at the Center for Agriculture, Science and Environmental Education in Brush Prairie, also known as CASEE.   Started in 2021, we'll raise plants in the hoop house for our restoration projects and will provide hands-on educational opportunities for CASEE students. 

Toutle  

In 2017, LCFEG staff installed a hoop house on the Toutle Lake High School campus to raise plants while providing students a hands-on opportunity to learn about watershed health, habitat restoration, and plant stewardship.   More recently, we added stooling beds for water-loving trees and shrubs like willows and cottonwoods for future habitat restoration projects.
