Duwamish Alive! Kayaking and Restoration Work

  • 10:00 AM

Unfortunately our kayaking shifts are filled, but contact us to find out which other sites need volunteers, or look online here!

On April 22, 10am to 2pm, join Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/TAG, EarthCorps Sound Stewards, and Puget Soundkeeper as we help to restore habitat and keep public access space along the Duwamish River safe and beautiful!

Cleanup work will be happening on land and on the water! As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to do both! Terminal 107, or T-107 Park, managed by the Port of Seattle, is an important historical site originally built for the construction of a marine terminal that now overlooks the only remaining natural bend in the Duwamish River. T-107 also serves as a place for salmon and other wildlife to rest, feed, and escape from predators. Volunteers will first join Puget Soundkeeper and Alki Kayak Tours in a kayak to remove litter from the banks of our river. Kayaks are provided by Alki and will launch from the T-107 boat launch. (*Minimum age to kayak is 13 years old.) Then on land, volunteers will work with Sound Stewards and DRCC/TAG to weed, mulch, pick up litter, and keep this site healthy and vital!

As a volunteer at this site, you will be part of Duwamish Alive!, a restoration and cleanup event working to make lasting improvements to over 20 sites in the Duwamish Watershed. Duwamish Alive! is a collaborative effort of local communities, municipalities, non-profits, and businesses to learn about, preserve, and enhance habitat for people and wildlife and to improve the health of the Puget Sound. Restoration events are held twice a year.

Thank you to Port of Seattle, Alki Kayak Tours, and the Rose Foundation for their support of this volunteer effort!
