Amount Awarded:
Project Title:
Duwamish Alive Coalition General Support
Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund, 2018
Project Description:

Duwamish Alive Coalition events restore critical native habitat and improve water quality for the recovery of the 5 salmon species in the Green-Duwamish Watershed while providing community education and engagement about important environmental issues in the highly industrial/urbanized Duwamish Watershed which is made up of underserved communities of diversity. Comprehensive information is provided, educating community members to the many challenges being faced and providing ways individuals can make a positive impact on the watershed. Their goal is to expand the number of habitat sites and activities which improve habitat and water quality, address issues impacting habitat and water quality, increase volunteers by engaging more community members as stewards, providing mentorship and resources to community groups establishing new restoration sites. Given the complexity of the watershed they continue to promote and facilitate collaboration across organizations, local communities and sectors, they are especially focusing on Longfellow Creek’s many various project, facilitating coordination and sharing of expertise throughout its watershed by identifying and mapping all projects and promoting collaboration.
