The Duwamish Tribe is committed to restoring the water and land. The tribe's ancestral homelands are along the waters of Elliott Bay and the Duwamish River Watershed. Native plants and animals of the area were a part of our culture and heritage as well as the source of our food and shelter. We stand with our allied organizations:

Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition

Seattle Parks Department

Earthcorp

Duwamish Alive!

King Conservation District

We are founding members of the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition (DRCC). DRCC's mission is to ensure a Duwamish River cleanup that is accepted by and benefits the community, and protects fish, wildlife, and human health. Stay connected for environmental public events with us and with the DRCC, contact@duwamishcleanup.org
