Help Us Restore qʷiqʷəlut Little Marsh in Tacoma

October 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

For 4+ years now, 350 Tacoma (with the support of City of Tacoma Environmental Services) have been working to restore qʷiqʷəlut, a long-neglected salt marsh located deep in the industrial Port of Tacoma, nestled between an oil terminal and a container shipping yard. We’d love your help!

 Tools, gloves, and instruction will be provided. This event is open to people of all ages and abilities. Start your weekend off with some refreshing outdoor activity as we remove invasive weeds and restore native habitat.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting the size of this event 15 people, so make sure to register and save your spot!

Where:  qʷiqʷəlut little marsh in Tacoma

When: Saturday October 15th 9am-12pm.

Where to park: Public parking lot available at the entrance to qʷiqʷəlut: click here

Where to meet:  On Port of Tacoma Rd, the Salt Marsh is located one block north of Lincoln Ave. on the right hand (east) side. Look for the white Green Tacoma Partnership signs, orange cones, and sunflower signs. Try to arrive a little early if it’s you

What to bring: Please dress in layers and in clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes, long sleeves, and pants are recommended. Bring a full water bottle and snacks. Don’t forget to bring your rain gear if rain is in the forecast.

If you are a volunteer under 18 and attending the event without a parent or guardian, please print and bring this waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
