Herrings House Park (Tulaltx) - Make A Difference Week …06/10/2021

Activities

Join us at Herring's House Park for Make A Difference Week and contribute to the work of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration! Set along the banks of the Duwamish River, Herring's House Park contains a mix of tidal marsh and riparian forest, with many native plant species that provide habitat for countless critters, including all five species of Pacific salmon. It is also a location that holds significance for the Duwamish Tribe, whose land we are inhabiting. Our mission is to remove noxious weeds and spread mulch in their place to enhance soil health and empower native plants to reclaim the ecosystem. We welcome anyone and everyone to join us for this fun day of making positive change!
