New report: Tribal Native Plant Materials Program Development Plan for the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde

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.
