Welcome to the Cultural and Historic Guide to Northwest Native Plants!
This ethnobotanical database is a fluid and flexible record of the plants that are and have been used by Northwest communities since time immemorial. Our goal is to crowd-source ethnobotanical heritage and knowledge by sharing, recording, and creating relationships across the cultural and biological aspects of regional plants. We hope this ethnobotanical database will open up the world of plants to new people and communities while digitally archiving variations in their presence, forms, and uses.
We welcome new ethnobotanical content! Users can also create both communities and collections to reflect their interests and needs.
