KNPS Plant Salvage Guidelines

The Kootenay Native Plant Society endorses and is guided by the Plant Salvage Guidelines of the Native Plant Society of BC, which can be found at http://www.npsbc.ca/pdf/NPSBC_Native_Plant_Salvaging.pdf.

In addition to these guidelines, the Kootenay Native Plant Society adopts the following further salvage guidelines:

  • that salvaged plants are not to be sold, and
  • that plants salvaged locally should be replanted locally.

The Kootenay Native Plant Society would like to emphasize that native plant salvage operations should be a last resort for lands slated for disturbance. Conservation of habitat is preferred, and conservation attempts should precede and take precedence over any salvage operations. Furthermore, any salvage operation being considered should include linkages to at least one other society objective, such as education, outreach, restoration or research.
