Development of this site was funded by the City of Tacoma, Artists Initiative Program through the Tacoma Arts Commission.

The site is hosted by The Evergreen State College, Olympia, WA.

The site was created in conjunction with the Science Stories Project funded by the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA.

The site relies on information from websites of many organizations listed in the resource section such as the Washington Native Plant Society, Audubon Society, Nisqually River Education Project, Tacoma Metro Parks, and the Tulalip and Puyallup Tribal Language programs.

I would like to acknowledge the individuals who helped me with this project:  Deborah Greenwood, An Gates, Dorothy McCuistion, Anna Thurston, Peter Wimberger, Jim Murphy, Aisha Harrison, Sheila Wilson,  Annette Santamasimo, Sharon Sharp and Susan Aurand.
