This website is part of the ongoing effort at The Evergreen State College to document the flora of the prairies of south Puget Sound. Evergreen students and local experts in prairie ecology have joined forces to create the first edition of a Field Guide to the Plants of the South Sound Prairies. This book aids in the identification of prairie plants and serves as a resource for information about the natural and human history of south Puget Sound prairies. A second edition is currently in progress to expand the number of species covered to over 200 plants. Scroll down to the Thumbnail gallery to find information about particular prairie and oak woodland plants.
All of the thumbnail pictures are credited in each monograph. Please click through to find each photographer's name, and thank you to the photographers who have been so generous with the usage of their beautiful photos.
