Getting Involved

with you

KCD provides funding and on-the-ground work for projects along the Duwamish River and its tributaries. We've been working with local landowners to restore streams and improve the water that flows into the Duwamish. This is good for our communities, our salmon, and our Orcas.

Duwamish Alive Coalition has put together a Green-Duwamish Journey this year to showcase projects that make a difference along the Duwamish. Take the tour at duwamishalive.org

Projects like the Delridge Wetland Park and Stewardship urban wetlands help reduce flooding and improve water quality by filtering pollution in stormwater runoff. Wetlands also provide a greenspace for all to enjoy. Delridge Park uses their greenspace as an outdoor classroom and teaching garden for nearby schools. Although teaching in the outdoor classroom and garden has been on hold to keep the community safe, produce grown in the teaching garden has been donated to local community members and food banks.
