This 4.5 acre preserve of Garry Oak open space property is located in
the Parkland area. The Preserve contains a degraded urban patch of
prairie along Clover Creek. Although dominated by invasive plants such
as Scotch broom, the Preserve still contains native plant remnants of
the once expansive woodland-prairie mosaic, such as blue camas and Idaho
fescue. Parkland Prairie Nature Preserve is currently undeveloped, and
does not contain park facilities, parking or maintained trails.
Reclaiming the Parkland Prairie Nature Preserve
Pierce County Parks and Recreation has teamed with the Pierce County
Beekeepers Association to reclaim the Preserve by removing noxious
weeds, installing forage-rich plants to help pollinators, and by
creating an accessible and educational environment for the public to
With the support of the Parkland Prairie Advisory
Group, composed of local restoration and prairie experts, volunteers are
currently removing noxious weeds, evaluating the existing habitat, and
preparing to restore the Preserve with plantings.
