16, 2011, Dr. Mike Marsolek, David Julian, Jim Smith, Chris Kemly, and Nicole
Nakaoka spent their morning volunteering at Alki Seacrest Park as a part of the
Duwamish Alive! river restoration event.
Dr. Marsolek and the SU crew were hard at work
r emoving invasive plants at the West Seattle Wildlife Habitat Garden,
located just West of Salty’s Restaurant by Alki Beach.
Upon removing the weeds and invasive groundcover, mulch was added to prevent soil from eroding into the water. The goal of West Seattle Wildlife Habitat
Garden is to educate the community as an example of native habitat. Duwamish Alive! is a volunteer event for
Earth Day hosted by the Duwamish Alive Coalition, which is a partnership of non-profit organizations, government agencies, community groups
and local businesses. While the
coalition works on restoration projects year round, Duwamish Alive! is the only event
where hundreds of volunteers come together on the same day at multiple sites
around the Duwamish watershed to make a huge impact. This year was a success, with over 1050
people participating in cleanup efforts!
