Propagation and Establishment of Hardstem Bulrush at Johnson Lake, Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon

Hardstem bulrush, also known as tule (Scirpus acutus Muhl.), is an obligate, emergent, perennial wetland plant. While ecologically important for wildlife habitat, waste water treatment, and stabilization of marsh sediments and shorelines, this species is also culturally significant for many native Americans. For the Warm Springs, Paiute, and Wasco Tribes of The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon, traditional uses include seats, baskets, clothing, mats for burial, wedding and name giving ceremonies, and covers for lodges and floors (Dick 1998).
