Olympia Ecosystems is a non-profit organization that has created four preserves in and around Olympia, Washington. We mobilize an enthusiastic volunteer workforce and partner with like-minded organizations to replace invasive species with thriving pacific northwest adapted plants. Our eight-member working Board of Directors and staff are dedicated to the protection of urban green space in perpetuity.
The Olympia Coalition for Ecosystems Preservation (OCEP) is established to protect, preserve and restore the diverse ecosystems in and around Olympia, Washington that include the freshwater, shoreline, tidal waters, grasslands and upland forests that are home to the Pacific Great Blue Heron, cutthroat trout, salmon and companion species. In coordination with community members, local agencies, and other non- profit groups, we will work to ensure that these ecosystems remain vital in perpetuity.
Our vision is of thriving nature and a thriving community in a sustainable urban ecosystem, one that enables Olympia to prosper while caring for the South Puget Sound.
