Duwamish Alive Earth Day Community Service
The Duwamish River is one of the most polluted rivers in the country, and the West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest natural area in the river's watershed. By restoring the forest, our community can help heal Seattle's only river. In order to keep Seattle green and support its rich forest ecosystem, Nature Consortium has been working to remove invasive weeds from the city’s largest remaining forest, the West Duwamish Greenbelt. The aim was to have 500 volunteers on April 19th to help make a big impact in a single day. APCA members answered Nature Consortium’s call for community service in support of Earth Day. Volunteers with gloves, boots and rain gear in tow met at Pigeon Point Park in West Seattle to proudly do their part in removing invasive weeds from taking over the ecosystem. Thank you APCA volunteers for making a difference in our community!
