Hansen's Northwest Native Plant Database
In the years before the Northwest Native Plant Journal was created, Wally wrote a newsletter in which he shared his thoughts with fellow gardeners. Although many of these were lost in transition, a few do remain. The topics of each missive have been imported to our website and are now available here for your viewing pleasure. They illustrate the true passion Wally had for native plants. He celebrated the beauty, the utility and the harmony found in surrounding ourselves with these natural wonders.
Should you happen to come across one of Wally's newsletters we're missing, I'd be most appreciative of a copy. I will scan them into this part of our website to be enjoyed by us all.
Thanks and happy reading!
