IAE recently completed the Tribal Native Plant Materials Program Development Plan for the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.
The plan is part of "Plants for People: bringing traditional ecological knowledge to restoration", a project funded by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. In addition to conducting restoration with a cultural plant focus, and gaining insights from tribal elders, the project established a pilot program for producing culturally important plant species. The development plan describes the background and the steps required for creating and expanding a tribal native plant materials program at Confederated Tribes of Grande Ronde.
IAE reports can be found through the Resources page, or under the individual program pages.
