Duwamish Alive! – a watershed-wide effort to improve the health of salmon by restoring their habitat – needs volunteers.

The group effort begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 20 at the Green River Natural Area at Neely Mansion, 12515 SE Green Valley Road, Auburn.

Duwamish Alive! volunteers will help restore native habitat in multiple urban parks and open spaces from Seattle to Auburn throughout the day in the ongoing effort to keep rivers alive and healthy for communities, salmon and the Puget Sound.

Saving salmon runs and increasing their vitality and abundance is critical to the survival of the region’s orcas, the group said. The primary food source, almost exclusively for orca is chinook salmon, which make the Green-Duwamish Watershed home.

Duwamish Alive! is a collaborative stewardship effort with the Green River Coalitions, recognizing that collective efforts are needed to make lasting, positive improvements in the health and vitality of the Green-Duwamish Watershed.

To volunteer, email michael@greenrivercoalition.org.
