On October 19th from 10am to 2pm, join the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/TAG, DIRT Corps, Puget Sound Stewards and Puget Soundkeeper as we help to restore habitat, improve water quality, and keep public access space along the Duwamish River safe and beautiful!
October 19th is also Orca Recovery Day, so what better way to work to protect our Southern Residents than to prevent pollution from draining into their home waters of Puget Sounds and from affecting their food supply of salmon.
Terminal 107, or T-107 Park, managed by the Port of Seattle, is an important historical site originally built for the construction of a marine terminal that now overlooks the only remaining natural bend on the Duwamish River. T-107 also serves as a place for salmon and other wildlife to rest, feed, and escape from predators.
Volunteers at this site will have the opportunity to join Puget Soundkeeper and Alki Kayak Tours in double kayaks to remove litter from the river banks (minimum age to kayak is 13 years old). There will be 2 kayak shifts: The first from 10am-12pm (20 people) and the second from 12pm-2pm (20 people). On land, volunteers will work with Sound Stewards and DRCC/TAG to weed, mulch, and plant new trees and shrubs.
As a volunteer at this site, you will be part of Duwamish Alive!, a restoration and cleanup event that makes lasting improvements to over 20 sites in the Duwamish watershed. The Duwamish Alive! Coalition is a collaborative effort of local communities, municipalities, non-profits, and businesses to learn about, preserve, and enhance habitat for people and wildlife and to improve the health of the Puget Sound. Restoration events are held twice a year. To learn more, visit www.duwamishalive.org.
