Volunteer at the Duwamish Hill Preserve in Tukwila

Join volunteers to help restore this culturally significant preserve and city park. Event activities include invasive weed removal, mulching and planting as seasonally appropriate.

Please REGISTERE HERE for this event.

About the Property: In 2001, Forterra, the City of Tukwila, and a local citizen group formed a partnership to work for the preservation of an undeveloped parcel of land on the Duwamish River. The property will be managed as a public open space preserve devoted to the interpretation of the site’s Native American cultural significance and other aspects of Duwamish River Valley natural and cultural history. The Hill is culturally significant for its association with southern Puget Sound Salish oral tradition and history, as a key location in the stories collectively known as the “Epic of the Winds.” Learn more here.

Please come out and contribute to this effort!. Please register online today.

What to bring: Please dress for the weather. Suggested Dress: Boots or comfortable athletic shoes, work clothes, appropriate layers for rain and sun. Volunteers should also bring a refillable water bottle and snacks.  Restoration training, tools and gloves will be provided. No experience necessary!

Where to meet: Duwamish Hill Preserve is located at: 3800 S 115th St Tukwila, WA 98168.  We will meet at the parking lot at the 115th St. Preserve entrance.

Last Saturday Restoration Work Party!

Join the Green Redmond Partnership on the last Saturday of the month to help keep our forested parks healthy. Dig into some hands-on restoration, spend a morning outdoors, earn service credit, and give back to the community. Bring friends and family with you, meet some new neighbors, or enjoy the quiet of the park on your own. We'll bring the tools, gloves, and any other materials we need; you bring the helping hands.


Time: 9:00 am

Where to meet: Enter the park from the north (not from 24th Street). Starting on West Lake Sammamish Parkway, turn into NE 27th Street, and make a right immediately to stay on NE 27th Street. Follow the street as it curves to the left, becomes 185th Avenue, and dead-ends at the park.Look for Green Redmond event signs.

What to bring: your smile and perhaps a snack (we will supply water - you can bring a water bottle to refill)

 

If you have any questions, and to sign up, please contact Marilynn Leland at 206-905-6943 or by email at greenviewpoint@gmail.com


This is a family event so bring the kids, as long as an adult will stay with them the entire time.

All ages welcome. If you are under 18 and attending the event without a parent or guardian please bring this waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
