What Is Duwamish Alive?

Nature Consortium is part of the Duwamish Alive Coalition, a group of nonprofits, businesses, community groups, and government agencies working together to protect and restore habitat in the Duwamish River Watershed. Twice a year, the coalition organizes a day of service called Duwamish Alive to bring volunteers together at several restoration sites along the river.

After the work party, stick around for a post-event celebration featuring live music, refreshments, and art activities in the park.

Why Is This Work Important?

Seattle is at risk of losing 50% of its forests in the next few decades. Much of the threat is caused by invasive weeds that take over an area and cause native plants to die – and when that happens, we lose the biodiversity that makes our forests thrive. In order to keep Seattle green and support its rich forest ecosystem, Nature Consortium is working to restore the city’s largest remaining forest, the West Duwamish Greenbelt, by removing invasive weeds and replanting native plants. You can help by pitching in at Duwamish Alive.
