Duwamish Alive! Restore Our River Workparties

On April 17, 2010 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at multiple sites along the Duwamish River, the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition is hosting restoration work parties.

Join and help restore critical salmon and other wildlife habitat within the Duwamish watershed at multi-site volunteer work parties. Tools, instructions, and snacks provided! No experience necessary, and work, school, communities, or social networking groups are encouraged to volunteer together.

DRCC and Puget Soundkeeper Alliance are co-hosting a kayak river cleanup to remove plastic and other debris from the water and tide lines.

Georgetown Community Council, CleanScapes, and DRCC are also co-hosting a restoration site along 8th Avenue S in Georgetown to install additional native plants in an ‘industrial strength’ rain garden, and other street cleanup activities.

Or join work parties at any of the 12 sites within the Duwamish watershed! Sign up for a site today at  www.duwamishalive.org.  For more information contact Thea Levkovitz, Coalition Coordinator, or Cari Simson, Program Manager, Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition at 206-954-0218.
