Duwamish Shoreline Challenge
This year DuwamishAlive! is focused on watershed restoration efforts along Longfellow Creek in West Seattle from its headwaters at Roxhill Bog, to Brandon Street Natural Area through to Pigeon Point Park. Longfellow Creek is Seattle’s second largest salmon-bearing creek flowing directly into the Duwamish River. Each year 60-100% of salmon in Longfellow Creek die before they get the chance to spawn due to pollution from heavy stormwater runoff and threatened habitat. Our goal is to improve the water quality within the Longfellow Creek watershed by establishing natural stormwater systems throughout critical areas and improving the native habitat.
