Duwamish Alive! Kayaking and Restoration Work
October 22, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Volunteer work will be happening on land and on the water! And 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. It was originally built as a construction site for a marine terminal that overlooks the original bends of the Duwamish River, and serves as a place where salmon and other wildlife can rest, feed and escape from predators. On land, volunteers will work with Sound Stewards and DRCC/TAG to weed, mulch, pick up litter and keep this site healthy and vital! On the water, join Puget Soundkeeper and Alki Kayak Tours in a kayak to help remove litter from the banks of our river. The kayaks will launch from the T-107 boat launch. *Minimum age for kayaks is 13 years old.
As a volunteer at this site, you will be part of Duwamish Alive!, a restoration and cleanup event working to make lasting improvements at more than 12 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, thereby improving the health of the Puget Sound. Restoration events are held twice a year.
