Join hundreds of volunteers to serve your community for this year’s Fall Duwamish Alive! At the Duwamish Shoreline we will be continuing restoration efforts by removing harmful, invasive weeds that threaten the health of our urban forest, and planting native trees and shrubs. This is a great way to give back to your local community, and an awesome opportunity to meet some new faces, to get your hands dirty, and to get outside and connect with the Green-Duwamish River!
Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all of the tools and training needed. So bring along your friends and family and get your hands dirty!
If you would like to RSVP for this event, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
