About

Duwamish Alive! at Cecil Moses Park: Tukwila

Join EarthCorps and King County Parks for the 11th Annual Duwamish Alive planting event at Cecil Moses park along the Green River Trail. Join us and a host of partners and volunteers as we continue to restore critical habitat along Seattle's only river!

Cecil Moses Park is a river-side oasis in the Tukwila area, and a popular starting point for the Green River Trail. Adjacent to the Duwamish River, Cecil Moses provides critical habitat for wildlife, like salmon, osprey and blue herons, as well as helping provide clean air and water for nearby residents!

THE BASICS:
EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water and snack bars. We will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, forest health, and the importance of the work you will be doing. No prior experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new!

FOR YOUR SAFETY AND COMFORT, PLEASE BRING:
  • Clothing that can get dirty (because it will!)
  • Long pants and long sleeves (helps protect against prickly plants)
  • Sturdy shoes that can handle some mud (closed toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, rubber boots, running shoes or similar)
  • Rain gear and warm layers (check the weather!)
  • Sack lunch and snacks
  • Full water bottle
  • Travel mug for tea/coffee
The event will happen rain or shine!
