DUWAMISH ALIVE! Though all the volunteer spots are filled, you’re invited to Duwamish Alive! for the opening ceremony at həʔapus Village Park (4500 Duwamish Trail).

Duwamish Alive! is a watershed-wide collaborative effort in improving the health of our salmon by restoring their habitat, which provides food, shelter, and cool, clean water. Starting at 10:00 am, volunteers will be restoring native habitat in multiple urban parks and open spaces from Seattle to Auburn in the ongoing effort to keep our river alive and healthy for our communities, salmon, and Puget Sound, proving that many individuals 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 from the special programing and information at həʔapus Village Park & Shoreline Habitat, located on the ancestral site of the Duwamish Tribe along the river. Meet the organizations working to improve and protect the river and its habitat areas. Take home a FREE NATIVE PLANT from the Duwamish Longhouse while visiting their exhibit “Spirit Returns – A Duwamish and Settler Story.”

Scheduled speakers include Duwamish Tribe chair Cecile Hansen and Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell.

    What’s the park name in English please?  So I can refer to it without having to learn to read, write and speak another language.  Thank you.

      This IS the park’s name. If you click on the park name in the item, you can learn all about it on its website, including pronunciation and its former name.

      Whitman’s Burden, by “…another language.” do you mean Lushootseed, the language native to this area? —Mike
