Attend the Green-Duwamish Watershed Symposium, Feb. 29

For people seeking greater synergy around improving the health of our environment and communities, this Leap Day will be extra special.

Our colleagues at Green Seattle Partnership posted terrific information about the region’s first Green-Duwamish Watershed Symposium, which will take place on Monday, Feb. 29, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Tukwila Community Center, 12424 42nd Ave. S., in TuRainierPlanekwila.

“The purpose of this innovative symposium is to foster collaboration across the Green–Duwamish Watershed, build partnerships, share knowledge and spark innovation concerning the Green-Duwamish Watershed’s health and inspiring those working on the watershed’s ecological challenges and social issues. 

Participants will increase their knowledge about the watershed, gain new perspectives, techniques and methods for their on-the-ground projects, broaden their networks of relationships and resources, and be inspired with a deeper commitment to improving the watershed’s health.”

King County Executive Dow Constantine will deliver opening remarks to begin an incredible day of information panels and TED-like talks designed to connect and inspire those interested in water quality, habitat restoration, wildlife preservation, environmental education, social justice, and community health.

Seating is still available, and Early Bird Registration that runs through Jan. 31 includes lunch and an exhibit social hour.

The event is sponsored by the Green River Coalition and Duwamish Alive!. More information is available online at http://www.greenduwamishwatershedsymposium.org.
