Duwamish alive! is a collaborative, watershed-wide effort to improve the health of our salmon by restoring their habitat, which provides food, shelter and fresh, clean water. Beginning at 10:00 a.m., volunteers will restore native habitat in multiple city parks and open spaces from Seattle to Auburn as part of the ongoing effort to keep our river alive and healthy for our communities, salmon and Puget Sound, proving that many people working together can make a substantial difference in improving the health of our region. Visitors will learn about the river, its salmon, wildlife and communities through special programming and information from həʔapus Village Park & Shoreline Habitat, located at the Duwamish Tribe ancestral site along the river. Meet the organizations working to improve and protect the river and its habitats.
