Join us for a day of restoring the health of our watershed and salmon habitat at sites from Seattle to Auburn

The Green-Duwamish Watershed will be alive with hundreds of volunteers working throughout it to improve the health of its habitat and water for salmon, wildlife and communities on October 15th. This collaborative effort brings together many organizations and municipalities to highlight the complexity of our watershed and its importance to our region in restoring its health and the salmon that depends upon it. We will be working in the upland forests, along and in the river, its tributaries, and wetlands from Seattle to Auburn.  The Green-Duwamish River is home to all 5 salmon species including the important Chinook, which the Southern Resident Orca require.  The river’s Chinook Salmon are one of the most important sources the local orca have as a food source.

Because our watershed is important to the survival of our Southern Resident Orcas, we are also partnering with Conservation Districts’ Orca Recovery Day event which is being held also on the 15th throughout the region. We will be hosting not only volunteering opportunities, but at many of our sites we will have community engagement/educational activities for the broader community to enjoy. These will be in  Auburn, Kent, Tukwila and Seattle.  This is a family friendly event, with all ages welcome.  Tools and instruction is provided.  For further information contact sharon@duwamishalive.org
