The Duwamish Hill Preserve is a ten acre park providing green space amongst industry in the City of Tukwila. This hill was formed from glaciers, and is older than Mt. Rainier! Within the park you will find native plants of different ecosystems, a Puget Sound Salish Cultural Garden, and artwork and signs by a local artist, Mette Hanson.
This event will be celebrated alongside other Duwamish Alive! Coalition members’ events, such as Forterra, Common Acres and Friends of the Hill. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Volunteers will be working with the ECOSS and Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust to learn about the history and uses of the preserve, plant native species and connect the natural ecosystems by removing encroaching invasive species. Thank you for signing up to volunteer!
*Important notice: there is a police shooting range neighboring the site, you may hear gunfire from the Seattle Police shooting range to the north of the preserve. It is contained and does not pose a risk to volunteers.*
