Native plants

In this May 2014 photo, red flowering currant can be seen growing in Skagit County. This plant is a Pacific Northwest native.

A group of plant-enthusiast community members gathered virtually Wednesday night for a presentation from the Camano Wildlife Habitat: “Native Plants for Climate Resilience.”

The presentation was given by retired biologist Brenda Cunningham, who has worked for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and Skagit Land Trust. She is currently the manager of the Salal chapter of the Native Plant Society in Mount Vernon.
