Lake Union Kayak Patrol

January 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Volunteers on the water during kayak patrol.

Volunteer patrols form a central part of our effort to monitor pollution and prevent debris from contaminating our waterways. While on patrol, we keep an eye out for abnormal discharges and oil slicks. We also check for the application of best management practices by shoreline businesses.

Volunteers will be outfitted in double kayaks and paddle to a designated area of Lake Union to monitor water pollution and remove debris from the shorelines. Kayaks are generously provided free of charge by the Northwest Outdoor Center. If necessary, volunteers may help report pollution concerns to an appropriate agency.

No prior kayaking experience is needed and all equipment is provided (boats, paddles, PFDs, spray skirts and equipment for cleaning up trash). Everyone will be outfitted in a double kayak. Participants must dress for the weather and expect to get a little wet. Personal belongings can be stored in the NWOC office. A safety overview will be delivered before heading out.

Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm

Location: Northwest Outdoor Center (NWOC) – 2100 Westlake Ave N #1, Seattle, WA 98109

To attend: Space is limited and filled on a first come, first serve basis. Please email Hillary (hillary@pugetsoundkeeper.org) or call (206) 297-7002 to reserve your spot(s).
