Another Harbor Island cleanup: Matson workers @ T-10

Earlier this month, we showed you the work of a group of Harbor Island workers calling themselves HIPE – unveiling murals and planters in an area once plagued by dumping. Today, we have news of a different group of Harbor Island workers beautifying part of the industrial, man-made island – Jackie from Matson Navigation shares the photos and this report:

A couple of years ago I wrote you about my coworkers and my volunteer project where we helped with the “stencil a storm drain” program in the Alki neighborhood.

I wanted to share with you that last night we were back at it! My small office worked together with the Port of Seattle to clean up a site at Terminal 10 (on Harbor Island, where Matson is also located). We worked to remove morning glory and other invasive plants, helped cover the area with mulch, and remove litter from the beach.

The site is a little bit of prettiness on Harbor Island, as well as a home for fish and wildlife. It felt really good to help tidy the area up a bit, and get some much needed sun at the same time.

Terminal 10 is just north of the old flour mill, as explained on this Port webpage.
