First reported April, 1992. Last updated June 3, 2002.
This list was first compiled from reports from a field trip of the Central Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS) led by Clayton Antieau in April, 1992, and from a Salal Chapter trip led by Art Kermoade in July, 1992. It has been expanded as a result of many subsequent field trips by members of the WNPS, in particular individuals from the Salal and Koma Kulshan Chapters. Known contributors to version 1 include Antieau, C., Duemmel, J., Dursh, A., Hoff, M., Kermoade, A., Legg, P., Mitchell, H. and Youngman, P. (if you contributed names to the original list(s) and want your name added, please let us know). Many additions are based on notes provided by Harold Mitchell, Salal Chapter.
