This 5-year strategic plan is meant to serve as a guide towards meeting the challenges of native plant production and ecological restoration in the Rogue Basin region.
The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is to formalize the cooperative effort among the Rogue Native Plant Partnership’s member organizations and meet the following goals:
- Facilitate a sustainable and reliable supply of native plant materials to federal and state agencies as well as local non-governmental organizations and the public
- Streamline the native plant materials procurement process by centralizing seed collection efforts and grow-out contracting among partner organizations
- Increase diversity and genetic appropriateness of locally-available native plant materials
- Provide technical and financial support to local native plant producers

The Willamette Valley Native Plant Materials Partnership was formed in 2012 with the goals of pooling resources and coordinating production efforts to improve native plant material availability and lower costs for the Willamette Valley Ecoregion. The Willamette Valley has a variety of habitats that comprise a unique community of native plant species and ecosystem functions, and a high percentage of these habitats have been converted to agricultural, industrial, and residential uses. A regional approach to the coordination of native plant materials development, production, and restoration contribute to a more cohesive valley-wide effort to conserve and restore increasingly rare habitats such as wetlands, oak savanna, and upland prairies.

The Center for Natural Lands Management is known for superior stewardship of natural lands and rare species. This expertise is also a focus for the South Sound Program, building on a 19 year track record of successfully restoring South Sound habitats as part of The Nature Conservancy. The South Sound Program focuses much of its effort on the rarest habitats of the area – prairies, oak woodlands and the freshwater systems of the Black River.

The RBP envisions harnessing the collective power of partners to support healthy watersheds and vibrant communities throughout the 3.3 million acre Rogue River Basin. They provide a basin-wide venue and perspective to enhance the success of member/partner organizations by: seeking out financial and in-kind resources; supporting prioritization and coordination of stewardship actions among partners; tracking and mapping collective progress; and sharing the Basin successes with potential investors.

The National Seed Strategy fosters interagency collaboration to guide the development, availability, and use of seed needed for timely and effective restoration. The Strategy includes four goals, with associated objectives and initial actions (2015-2020) to improve seed supplies for restoring healthy and productive native plant communities.
