Restore – and Kayak – at Duwamish Alive!

October 17, 2015 @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm

On October 17, join Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/TAG, EarthCorps Sound Stewards, and Puget Soundkeeper as we keep important habitat and public access space along the Duwamish River safe and beautiful!

Volunteer work will be happening on land and on the water!  And as a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to do both!  Terminal 107 or T-107 Park, managed by the Port of Seattle, is an important historical site originally built as a construction site for a marine terminal that overlooks the original bends of the Duwamish River and serves as a place where salmon and other wildlife can rest, feed, and escape from predators.  On land, volunteers will work with Sound Stewards and DRCC/TAG to weed, plant, pick up litter and keep this site healthy and vital!  On the water, join Puget Soundkeeper and Alki Kayak Tours in a kayak to help remove litter from the banks of our river.  The kayaks will launch from the T-107 boat launch. (*Minimum age for kayaks is 10 years old)

As a volunteer at this site, you will be part of Duwamish Alive!, a restoration and cleanup event working to make lasting improvements at over 12 sites in the Duwamish Watershed.  This is the 10th year of this volunteer effort to make a positive impact within our community while learning about our local environment.  Duwamish Alive! is a collaborative effort of local communities, municipalities, non-profits, and businesses to preserve and enhance habitat for people and wildlife towards improving the health of the Puget Sound.   Restoration events are held twice a year.

Thank you to Port of Seattle, Alki Kayak Tours, and Rose Foundation for their support for this volunteer effort!
