Join us in Restoring the Health of our River and its Watershed this Summer!
Join our partners as a volunteer to make a positive impact within our community while learning about our local environment. Volunteer opportunities vary widely throughout the watershed, removing debris; planting native plants and removing invasive weeds in a variety of habitats which include a natural bog, sites along the river or in our urban forests.

This year DuwamishAlive! will focus watershed restoration efforts along Longfellow Creek
in West Seattle from its headwaters at Roxhill Bog, to Brandon Street Natural Area
through to Pigeon Point Park. Longfellow Creek is Seattle’s second largest salmon-bearing
creek flowing directly into the Duwamish River. Each year 60-100% of salmon in
Longfellow Creek die before they get the chance to spawn due to pollution from heavy
stormwater runoff and threatened habitat. Our goal is to improve the water quality within
the Longfellow Creek watershed by establishing natural stormwater systems throughout
critical areas and improving the native habitat.
