Conservation Corridor Activities
Protect Local Waterways
What does it mean to "adopt" a drain? By adopting a drain you will be making a commitment to monitor and maintain a drain of your choice. Create a positive impact by preventing flooding in your neighborhood by keeping drains free of debris; preventing pollutants from entering our lakes, rivers, creeks, and Puget Sound, which impact the habitat for fish and other wildlife; and helping the city maintain our infrastructure, especially during fall months when rain increases and falling leaves block the drains.
The Carkeek Watershed Community Action Project (CWCAP) uses education in action to promote clean water for the health and safety of salmon, watersheds, community, and the Puget Sound. Come learn about the work this volunteer-run group has be doing for the past 30 years, and how you can get involved in their salmon programs. Joining them will be the Carkeek Park Advisory Council and the Seattle Watershed Alliance
Join up with the team from the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance to help keep the park clean and clear and debris.
