Earth Day weekend might have been quiet for some, but not for the hundreds of people who pitched in their shovels and beautified the riverbanks of the Duwamish.
Duwamish Alive! is a coalition of over 30 organizations that include community groups, non-profits, local businesses and Federal, State, local and Tribal governments. Twice a year we all come together to preserve and enhance habitat for people and wildlife along the river.
This was our 9th Duwamish Alive! Earth Day event, and over the years we’ve brought a steady improvement in increasing salmon and other wildlife habitat, replacing invasive plants with native ones, and reducing polluted runoff from stormwater that drains into the Puget Sound.
Thank you so much to all our incredible volunteers and organizers that made this happen.
Hats off to:
- The Rose Foundation and KEEN footware for funding the event
- CleanScapes for supplying free garbage/recycling/compost containers
- Rainier Fruit for donating Lady Alice apples
- Our site specific partners – EarthCorps and the Port of Seattle
- Volunteer groups at our site – Environmental Professionals of Color â€“ Seattle Chapter, Lush Cosmetics, Alaska Airlines, and everybody else who toughed out the rain and made a difference with us!
