T-107 is an important archaeological, cultural and historical site that sits on the shores of the original Duwamish River. Also known as Terminal 107, this portion of the riverbank was originally the construction site for a marine terminal. In 1977, artifacts were found during the development process, which halted all construction. The tribe and the community fought to preserve the area, and today it now stands as a wildlife habitat and a lovely public access site that overlooks the only original bends in the river. T-107 is an important habitat node, or oasis, where returning salmon and other wildlife can rest, feed and escape from predators… we want to keep it this way, and make it even better!

Don’t miss this opportunity to make a difference on your river, meet people, enjoy pastries and coffee, and get a free “workout.”  There will be a choice of tasks that you can help us with, including weeding, removing invasive plants, maintaining the existing plantings and mulching.

Duwamish Alive! – Fall 2013

We had a great fall Duwamish Alive! event on Saturday, October 19th!  Thank you so much to everybody that showed up at Terminal 107 (T-107) and helped us make our river a healthier place for our community, fish and wildlife!  Here are some of the highlights of the event we would like to share with you:

  • Thirty (30) people volunteered their time
  • 164 native plants were planted
  • Two and a half (2.5) cubic yards of mulch were spread in a 180 ft2  area
  • A 140 ft2 area was cleared of invasive plants (blackberry, Scott’s broom, English ivy, Wusteria, buttercup and more)
