FULL!! – Lake Union Kayak Patrol

August 31, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

This event is now full. Please email Jessica@pugetsoundkeeper.org if you would like to join the waitlist. Often, people must cancel at the last minute (life happens!), so it is helpful to have a waitlist of willing volunteers to guarantee that we have the greatest impact we can. Thank you!

Join Puget Soundkeeper for a Lake Union Kayak Patrol! During the patrol, you will help us monitor marine pollution and remove debris from our waterways.


Volunteers do not need any prior kayaking experience and will be provided with all necessary equipment (kayaks, paddles, lifejackets, etc). However, participants should expect to get a little wet and plan to dress for the weather.


On August 31st, we will meet at the Northwest Outdoor Center on Lake Union at 11 am. Upon arrival, volunteers will receive a safety overview, including COVID-19 protocols. Volunteers and Puget Soundkeeper staff will then paddle to a designated area of Lake Union to monitor water pollution and remove trash. We will end the patrol by 1 pm. Kayaks are generously provided free of charge by the Northwest Outdoor Center.



This event is now full. Please email Jessica@pugetsoundkeeper.org if you would like to join the waitlist.
