Thank you to the Port of Seattle for their partnership at this site!
Terminal 107 or T-107 sits on the shores of the Duwamish River and was originally the construction site for a marine terminal.¬† In 1977, artifacts were found during the development process – and the Duwamish tribe and community fought to preserve the area.¬† Today it stands a public access site that overlooks the original bends of the river!¬†¬† It serves as a place where returning Salmon and other wildlife can rest, feed, and escape from predators.¬† Connect with your community and help us keep this as a safe and beautiful place!
Adjoining this site is Herring’s House, a site managed by Seattle Parks and Recreation where an intertidal estuary is designed to serve as a habitat for juvenile Chinook salmon.¬† The park also includes trails, three viewpoints overlooking the river, and picnic areas.¬† A team of volunteers will be doing some work on this section as well.
Go here to volunteer for the day!
