Monica Van der Vieren became a Snohomish County native plant steward in 2003 to learn habitat restoration techniques for her acreage in the upper Snohomish River Estuary, where she lives with her two horses. Since then, Monica has worked at home to create wildlife habitat, landscaping around her home, and a small, informal fruit and garden area. She gives volunteer presentations at the Woodland Park Zoo twice a year, and upon request for the Snohomish Conservation District, Community Habitat programs from Seattle to Bellingham, and other interested groups. Monica works with communities as a public involvement professional on capital sewer construction projects for a regional wastewater utility.
