Seed Banking in the Miller Seed Vault
The Miller Seed Vault is the largest vault of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. Seeds are stored in the vault for species protection research purposes and possible future restoration projects.
The mission of the Miller Seed Vault is to:
- collect and conserve seed of over 320 rare plant species in Washington,
- conserve the seed of native species used to restore native plant communities following a natural disaster, and
- conserve the seed of horticultural varieties not commonly used today.
