Duwamish Alive! An Earth Corps Event April 19

Duwamish Alive collaborates with community, municipalities, non-profits and businesses within the Duwamish River watershed to preserve and enhance habitat for people and wildlife, towards improving the health of Puget Sound. As a Duwamish Alive member organization, EarthCorps supports this vision of creating a River for All. Hundreds of volunteers will work with Duwamish Alive member organizations to make a huge impact on the health of the Duwamish River Watershed.

EarthCorps and Nature Consortium are joining forces again for the Annual Duwamish Alive Earth Day event at the West Duwamish Greenbelt/Pigeon Point Park. Join us, the Green Seattle Partnership and a host of partners and volunteers as we continue to restore the largest contiguous greenbelt in Seattle.

EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water and volunteer education that covers safety, information on the West Duwamish Greenbelt, forest health, environmental restoration and the overview of the project. We suggest that volunteers dress in layers of older clothes that include long pants, long sleeve shirt and a jacket. Durable footwear such as work boots, hiking boots or running shoes are recommended for these events. These events take place rain or shine so please come prepared for the weather. Bring a lunch/snack if you would like as well as a water bottle and a coffee cup/travel mug for refreshments.
