Duwamish Alive! Take the Journey October – November
The Green-Duwamish Watershed is one of the most interesting places to explore, grounding us with a sense of place. Take the journey visiting interesting locations that tell the unique story of this area, its geology, history, ecology, and its peoples over time. Walk on land that held a 3,000 year old Duwamish Village then visit a Longhouse, experience salmon returning to their home to spawn along with other wildlife, visit innovative projects addressing our environmental challenges, stand on a rock cropping older than Mt. Rainier and the area that made Seattle and this region what it is today.
Download your guidebook for journey information on locations, fun activities, an eco-pledge raffle, and to experience our river in a new and deeper way. All locations offer easy walking, most are ada accessible and marked with a sign. This is a great activity to complement classroom learning. Remember to take something to write with and extra paper. The leaf activity requires thin paper, a crayon and your imagination – be inspired!
(The guidebook is formatted for 5 sheets, both sides of 8.5 x 11 paper and can be printed in either color or black & white. The booklet is designed to fold in half so each page is a half sheet of 5.5 x 8.5. If your printer offers the option of “flipping” of the page, choose “short end”.)
