The rich biodiversity of our Washington State is under siege by the usual suspects – habitat loss, land use practices, invasive species and climate change. Of 3,100 vascular plant species, 350 are rare. Rare Care builds partnerships with federal, state and local agencies to provide critical information needed in the conservation and recovery of our state’s native rare species. Citizen scientists and students participate in rare plant monitoring, ex situ conservation, reintroduction and education.
