The North Puget Sound Prairie Working Group promotes the conservation of North Puget Sound prairie ecosystems and the associated native plants and animals. This conservation is accomplished by connecting partners, sharing expertise and experiences, developing and sharing resources, and effectively planning, coordinating and implementing prairie conservation activities. The working group's focus is on the entire North Puget Sound prairie system, with an initial emphasis on Whidbey Island.
Working group members come from public agencies and private organizations and have knowledge and expertise in natural area protection, management, planning, and restoration, or are actively working to protect and restore prairie systems. The working group meets quarterly, with additional work completed between meetings. A primary measure of success of the working group is whether significant, on-the-ground improvements in prairies and oak woodland habitats are accomplished in North Puget Sound.
