The event is hosted by the Duwamish Alive Coalition, which is a partnership of non-profit organizations, government agencies, community groups and local businesses. Restoration is on-going throughout the year, but it’s only during Duwamish Alive that our organizations come together to host hundreds of volunteers at multiple
sites to make a huge impact on the same day!
