*Colville Confederated Tribes History/Archaeology Program - assisted with launch of Traditional Cultural Plant Program - Kali agreed to work on this project as a temporary hire in order to help the Tribal Plant Team start botanical surveys and develop a new herbarium. In our preliminary survey of the Colville Reservation, we located, documented, collected and preserved many plants of traditional cultural use as foods, medicines, building materials and more. We recorded habitat characteristics for each species of interest, including infestations of noxious weeds and other impacts that could negatively impact populations of these important native plants. Plans for the future include additional surveys and more detailed quantification and analysis of the vegetation, 2013 - 2014
*Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District - Traditional Plant Study - Robson Botanical Consultants was subcontractor to Mangi Environmental Group along with an ethnography consultant from ASM Affiliates. We produced a report on 50 plants most likely to be of high value to the Native American tribes in the areas managed by the Walla Walla District, including the Lower Snake River in Washington, the area around Dworshak Reservoir in northern Idaho, and the vicinity of Lucky Peak Dam, near Boise, ID. The study included a description of each species, its habitat and traditional uses. The Mangi GIS team developed map layers of likely habitat for each plant, based on available information, 2012
