Duwamish Alive Work Party

Join EarthCorps, the King Conservation District, the Green Seattle Partnership, and the Duwamish Alive Coalition as we restore important forest habitat along Longfellow Creek.

Longfellow creek is the second largest Salmon-bearing creek in Seattle. Every year, salmon return to the creek but few make it all the way to spawning due to threatened habitat. This where we need your help! We are working to restore the habitat along the creek as well as in adjacent greenspaces to improve water quality and provide habitat. Join us your neighbors and members of the community as we store this important habitat!


Where: Greg Davis Park, 26th Ave SW & SW Brandon St, Seattle
When: Saturday, October 21st 10 AM - 2 PM
