Herrings House Park (Tulaltwx) - First of Fall Land …09/24/2022

Activities

Come make a positive difference in improving the health of the Duwamish watershed that includes the Delridge community and beyond. For this event we'll be weeding and preparing for upcoming fall planting events.

Herrings House Park is located on the ancestral land of the Duwamish Tribe and fosters critical estuarine habitat where 5 species of juvenile salmon stop to feed, rest, and adapt to salt water before they continue their spawning journey out to Elliot Bay. Blue herons, Caspian terns and other important wildlife forage here year-round, as well as many species of plants native to the local coastal region. The event is good for all ages, feel free to bring the family!
