Success in Habitat Stewardship

Posted on October 16, 2015 at 10:46 AM by Allan Warren

Our friends at the City of Puyallup are working hard to restore the natural resources of their community. Whether it's through their ongoing Meeker Creek restoration project, Depave projects in local neighborhoods, or their 8th Avenue NW Low Impact Development Retrofit, the City has been busy striving towards their goal of restoring natural open space areas. Another way they're achieving this success is through their Habitat Stewardship Program.

The City of Puyallup is seeking new Habitat Stewards - Click Here for More Info.

The program allows interested citizens to adopt their favorite park or open space area to remove invasive plant species – such as English ivy, blackberry, scot’s broom – and establish native trees and shrubs and caring for those new plantings. The Habitat Stewardship program is also for those interested in simply volunteering instead of taking on the commitment of adopting a site on a monthly basis.

Puyallup is developing a 20-year plan to restore its natural open space areas – the city’s goal is to recruit two (2) new stewards per year to adopt a site for long term habitat stewardship. The city is seeking interested citizens to adopt the following priority habitat sites:
  • Dead Man’s Pond
  • Bradley Lake Park
  • Clarks Creek Park
