The mission of the Deschutes Basin Native Plant Seedbank (DBNPS) is to increase the availability of genetically local, native seeds for revegetation and restoration within the Deschutes Basin of Oregon.
DBNPS formed a collaboration of over 20 partners to increase the availability of genetically local, native seeds for revegetation and restoration within the Deschutes and John Day Basins. Our goal is to collect, propagate, store and make available seeds of common species used in land restoration. The Seedbank coordinates the management, sale, and inventory of native seeds, while facilitating cooperation between partners and users of the Seedbank. Seedbank partners assist in providing educational opportunities to their members, land managers, property owners and the public concerning benefits of native plants, their use and seeding guidelines.
