About

Are you passionate about plants?

We have an opportunity for a person who knows how to identify native plants of the Pacific Northwest, and is eager to share her/his skills, knowledge, and passion with visitors by leading a monthly guided plant walk at the Adriana Hess Wetland Park in University Place, WA.

Guides should also be able to talk about native plant uses, benefits of planting natives, habitat types or wildlife/birds that are attracted to specific plant species.

The site is an easy walk with ADA-compliant trails. This old homestead was converted to a park, and the outdoor area has been planted with natives and turned into a demonstration backyard habitat area where people can learn about planting with natives, see how they grow in different stages, and learn about planting to attract wildlife. Many plants are numbered and a printed trail guide is available. Habitat types include lowland forests of the Pacific Northwest and wetlands.

Walks occur on a weekday morning, typically.

We currently have one leader, but we'd like to invite others to join in sharing the duties and also to act as substitutes when other leaders are not available.We typically have 5-15 participants on this hour long walk of a 2 acre site.

The ideal candidate willl be personable, knowledgable, reliable, and friendly!
