FREE EVENT DAY
“Native Plants in the Duwamish River Ecosystem” is a free public outreach event of the Duwamish Longhouse Urban Reforestation Project sponsored by a King Conservation District grant.
Get engaged. The day focuses on the environmental health of Seattle’s only River, the Duwamish River, and the role of habitat restoration in sustaining it. The Duwamish River Clean-up Coalition will be providing an overview.
The Duwamish Tribe and Seattle Parks will be sharing the challenges and benefits of their reforestation projects on West Seattle steep slopes above the Duwamish River. Seattle Native Plant Nursery will be providing resource information you can use in your own backyard.
Seattle Parks will be providing information on its volunteer programs and training. A Duwamish member will discuss the cultural use of native plants in textile-making. Lunch will be provided.
The Duwamish Tribe, Seattle Parks and other community partners are all working to restore native habitats that preserve the Duwamish cultural landscape for all to explore. The Duwamish Tribe is still here and provides a deeper understanding of the indigenous land we all share and the bounty that awaits us as traditional habitats are restored.
Regard the Duwamish Urban Reforestation Project, invasive plants have been removed and native plants reintroduced. One of them, the Western Red Cedar has been used by our people to make baskets, weave hats and traditional clothing. Duwamish tribal member, DeAnn Sackman Jacobson, will talk about how our ancestors harvested bark and other materials to make baskets and garments. She will demonstrate the process of preparing and weaving the bark.
