A Plant Rescue is a way for volunteers to legally collect plants from private property scheduled for development. Plant Rescues can provide plants for invasive species restoration efforts, for propagation, for educational purposes, or for use in your own yard. Plant rescues can be small and relatively easily organized, or they may be large, involving dozens of people, and require substantial planning and organization. It is up to the organizer to decide how to run the rescue project. This document by Ed Travis of the Williamson County Chapter describes the issues to consider when planning a Plant Rescue.
