The Duwamish River





The Duwamish River was an important topic for us this year. It’s tributaries run through Marra Farm (where we volunteer with the Giving Garden), some of us live near its shores, it was the livelihood of the Duwamish People (who also need our help in their fight for Tribe recognition), it carries the Salmon we study, care about and eat, Alberto from the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition visited us and taught us about the river. It is the only river in Seattle and we need to take care of it!

From the banks of the Duwamish River, Coho gives us a brief introduction into why it is so polluted and how we are trying to stop the pollution:

To help further please volunteer with the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition!
