Join Us for Some Earth Day Urban Wild Lands Restoration at Duwamish Alive!

Saturday, April 21st, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, Apr 21st 2012

Join us on the Duwamish River, an EPA Superfund cleanup site, for our Earth Day project. Earth Day is the day we give back to the environment and participate in a hands-on project to restore our damaged areas to a healthy status for future generations.

We will be participating in the Duwamish Alive Earth Day Restoration event on April 21! We will be doing restoration work at the West Duwamish Greenbelt site in West Seattle; this site will be hosted and managed by the Nature Consortium and Earth Corps .

This event is huge! Hundreds of volunteers spend the day at various sites along the Duwamish River performing environmental restoration work such as digging blackberry, pulling ivy, and mulching. While volunteers work, musicians travel around the site providing entertainment and creating a playful, festival-type atmosphere. The West Duwamish Greenbelt site in West Seattle typically draws about 500 volunteers for this event! All tools, leadership, snacks, coffee and water are provided. After the restoration work is done for the day, Duwamish Alive provides a killer after party with music, a variety of BBQed delights, drinks, side dishes, and desserts.

Children may attend but they must be carefully supervised at all times. This is a fun, laid-back day where you can get immediate gratification for the effectiveness of your work!
