Reclaiming the Parkland Prairie Nature Preserve

Restoration efforts by the Pierce County Beekeepers Association, Parkland Prairie Advisory Group, Washington Conservation Corps, and community volunteers have improved pollinator and wildlife habitat throughout by removing noxious weeds, installing forage-rich plants to help pollinators, and creating an accessible and educational environment for the public to enjoy.

Connecting Ecology and Community
