Host: Brian Gunn
Info: Join teams of enthusiastic volunteers who will roll up their sleeves to help restore the Duwamish River on October 17. Duwamish Alive! is a chance for people to reclaim the river. On this day volunteers will work to plant native species. In 2001, Cascade Land Conservancy, the City of Tukwila, and a local citizen group formed a partnership to work for the preservation of an undeveloped parcel of land on the Duwamish River.
The Duwamish Riverbend Hill property was successfully acquired in March 2004 by the Cascade Land Conservancy and the City of Tukwila. The property will be managed as a public open space preserve devoted to the interpretation of the site’s Native American cultural significance and other aspects of Duwamish River Valley natural and cultural history. This event is sponsored by Cascade Land Conservancy and supported by Democrats Work (http://democratswork.org/).
