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 January 18th, 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.

For those under 18, please complete the Northwest Outdoor Center Minor Waiver in addition to the online registration form. Please email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it to the dock.
