Kayak the Duwamish & Learn About the River

The Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition is again holding their summer community kayak tours on July 14 and again on July 28 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

Join guides from DRCC, Alki Kayak Tours, Camp Long, National Wildlife Federation, and the Seattle Aquarium, to learn all about the natural and built environments of the Duwamish River.

Kayaking experience is not necessary. Explore the river to learn about Superfund sites, river history, and community activism. You’ll also see amazing habitat restoration sites and wildlife, including summer nesting ospreys, seals and sea lions, and shore birds.

Tours will also provide basic information about how to make a water quality violation report, and how to take simple water quality tests. Please see the DRCC Superfund web page for details about the cleanup documents.

Youth 18 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Meet at Duwamish Waterway Park, 7900 10th Ave. S. All gear is included. All tours cost $40 per person and are payable to Alki Kayak Tours.

Some scholarship funding is available for community members, please contact DRCC for more information.
