    Description

    Bloedel Reserve is a 150-acre botanical garden and nature preserve on the north end of Bainbridge Island in Washington on the Puget Sound. The grounds encompass undeveloped forest, pastures, a bird marsh, woodland plantings, and intensely maintained gardens within the limits of the City of Bainbridge Island. The garden is part of the Sentinel Plant Network, a partnership between the American Public Gardens Association and the National Plant Diagnostic Network that engages public garden professionals, volunteers, and visitors in the early detection of serious plant pests and diseases. With funding from the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the Sentinel Plant Network has trained hundreds of front-line garden staff on best practices for monitoring plant collections and host plants for signs and symptoms of regionally significant threats as well as the proper way to collect and submit diagnostic samples. The program also provides member gardens with a wide variety educational outreach and training materials for use in engaging communities about the impact of serious plant pests and diseases and the importance of early detection and rapid response. Since participating in their first Sentinel Plant Network training in 2011, staff at Bloedel Reserve have used the program’s resources to intensify their monitoring efforts.
