Bioswale walking tour

From Cari Simson at Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition:

Have you wondered what a "natural drainage" rain garden or bioswale looks like? Have you thought that more bioswales or natural drainage in Delridge, Highland Park, Beacon Hill, Georgetown or South Park would be a good thing? You are invited to come on a free walking tour of a natural drainage bioswale in Georgetown on Tuesday, February 2nd from 11:30-1pm. The site is in an industrial neighborhood of Georgetown, just off E. Marginal Way. We'll walk the site, observe how it works, and then walk up to the Coliman Restaurant for lunch & conversation about the design specifics and other potential applications, 6932 Carleton Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108 (http://www.colimanrestaurant.com/).
Please RSVP to: crsimson@gmail.com for directions and additional information.

Also, next Wednesday February 3rd from 12-2pm the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition and ARCADE Journal will be co-hosting a boat tour of the Duwamish River, focusing on urban design and planning. Currently there are only about 25 spaces left and tickets cost $20 through Brown Paper Tickets. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/94048
**If would like to attend but can't afford to pay full price, please contact cari (at) duwamishcleanup.org and we can arrange for a limited number of 'pay what you can' tickets.**
