Celebrate the start of spring!

This month we officially say goodbye to winter and welcome the the start of spring. This means that it’s that time of year when our forests will be getting greener, giving us all the more reason to get outside. Check out how we are celebrating the spring season by spreading awareness about invasive species and learning about Washington’s early bloomers.

Invasive Species Awareness Week

Last week, we celebrated Invasive Species Awareness Week by featuring insights from local ecologists on their “favorite” invasive plants. Click HERE to see what Seattle Parks and Recreation’s own Bridget Kelsh has to say about invasive blackberry and her time spent tackling it on Seattle’s Natural Areas Crew.

See it? Report it!

The Washington Invasive Species Council has created an easy-to-use app to report sightings of invasive plants, animals and other pesky organisms anywhere in Washington State. Just take a photo and upload it to the app, and your report will be sent directly to the right agency. Learn more about the app HERE.

Signs of Spring

It may be hard to believe, but the official start of spring is just two weeks away! Forterra wants you to know which native plants will be blooming in the month ahead, and to get to know Washington’s true first signs of spring.
