Volunteer patrols form a central part of our effort to monitor pollution and prevent debris from reaching the Sound. We need your help each week as we paddle through Lake Union and remove trash from the water while keeping an eye out for other pollution violations. Volunteers will be in double kayaks outfitted with trash bags, grabbers, and nets for scooping debris from the water. The team will paddle to a designated area of the lake and collect any visible trash to properly dispose of back on land. Check out our video to gain a sense of what our kayak patrol is all about!
The Kayak Patrol is open to anyone over the age of 13 and no prior kayak experience is required. We will provide training and all necessary equipment. Kayakers must dress appropriately for the weather.
