If you want to help ensure we keep seeing them, set aside a few hours later this month to do this:

Two weeks from Saturday, it’s the fall edition of >Duwamish Alive! as announced:

Join Duwamish Alive! this Fall as our salmon are returning in our Duwamish River and Longfellow Creek, with this watershed wide effort in improving the health of our salmon by restoring their habitat which provides food, shelter and cool, clean water that salmon need. Volunteers will be restoring native habitat on in multiple urban parks and open spaces by removing invasive weeds, planting native plants, removing debris and learning about healthy habitat. This is a family-friendly event, all ages welcomed and encouraged.

To volunteer, visit DuwamishAlive.org to see the different volunteer opportunities and register for the site of your choice, or email info@duwamishalive.org

As you’ll see on the Duwamish Alive! link, your options include more than half a dozen sites here in West Seattle, and others elsewhere.

    I asked Duvamish Alive what volunteers need to bring, and whether we need boots etc. Here’s their reply:

    the tools, and instruction are provided at the site you choose, however
    personal clothing such as footwear and pants aren’t included since they
    are personal items. Just wear casual clothing that you don’t mind
    getting dirty.  Most wear t-shirts and jeans.  

    None of the sites require boots since most of the work is on dry land but depending on the weather the soil can be wet.

Sorry, comment time is over.
