[Tweeters] So what plants?

Check your county conservation district (CD) - I got all mine for the past 15 years from Pierce County CD. The plants for all CDs are raised in Bow (I believe that’s still the case). I’ve gotten shore pine, red currant, white pine, incense cedar, mock orange, Garry oak, etc. One year they even had ponderosa pine that were grown from seeds from Joint Base Lewis McChord (largest acreage of that species in western Washington) - thus native to where I live here in Roy. (I have about 15 of those growing here.)

Cost is minimal. Definitely check with your local conservation district.

May all your birds be identified,

The talk about "plant native" is good. But how do I, a homeowner with
some space where I can plant native species, find out which plants to
put in, how to care for them until they are self-sufficient, and where
to get them (seeds? starter plants?) ... ???
