Rain2River (R2R) is DRCC/TAG‚Äôs newest program. ¬†It was created after identifying the need to take a holistic, watershed approach to informing, educating, engaging and empowering the community through the public process of the cleanup of the Duwamish River Superfund site and the control of polluting sources.¬† Our goal is to make sure the communities in the entire CSO drainage basin understand the connection between their actions, how these affects the health of Seattle‚Äôs only river and the communities that depend on it, and to connect them with existing, easy and affordable solutions and resources that can help them address these issues.
The R2R Program features two main components, Walks and Boat Tours. ¬†This spring, we will be hosting four (4) Walks¬†and two to four (2-4) Boat Tours on the Duwamish River (depending on the number of attendees on each Walk). ¬†During¬†these, DRCC/TAG‚Äôs staff and partners (guest speakers including: local community members, local government representatives, non-profits‚Äô staff and businesses representatives), will cover topics such as grey and green infrastructure, polluted runoff, sustainable practices, Duwamish River Superfund site, environmental justice, and more, which will help us achieve our main objectives:
1. ¬†¬†¬†¬†Informing and Educating
2. ¬†¬†¬†¬†Making Connections and Finding Solutions
3. ¬†¬†¬†¬†Empowering Through Taking Actions
***All Walks attendees will get a FREE ticket to go on a Duwamish River Boat Tour on a later date!***
