Coast Salish Plant Nursery

The Coast Salish Plant Nursery carries a wide range of plants that are native to the region.

Our aim is to recognize and emphasize the cultural associations of Coast Salish plants, and how they can be used to improve habitat value for local wildlife.

All proceeds support habitat restoration and educational programming on Coast Salish culture and ecology. Feel good about your support for our Nursery program!

We are now open for online orders!
 
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic nursery facilities are closed to the public: pickup or delivery only. See the information below to place your order.
