The South Puget Sound Program – WSC Plant Propagation Technician is critically important to the development of native seed for restoration. Our nurseries coordinate the production of over 500,000 plant plugs and hundreds of pounds of native seed for several partner organizations, while assembling and updating production protocols for over 100 prairie plant species. The Native Plant Propagation Technician will assist our nursery team by collecting and processing native seed, as well as propagating our plants. Three quarters of his or her time will be spent at native plant nurseries; the rest of the time will be spent conducting on the ground restoration across various prairie preserves. Restoration activities include mechanical and chemical control of invasive species, monitoring key animal and plant species, wild seed collection, and planting plugs.
