Next chance to help ‘save the river’: Thursday night
A reminder from the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition – this event’s not in South Park but worth the drive/ride if you can make it!
Where can you find a 50-foot long large-scale model of Seattle’s only river + art (including an 18-foot “scroll”, professional photographs, paintings, sculptures, etc.) + authentic Hawaiian food + FREE tickets to the Seattle Aquarium (a limited number) AND play in the sand ALL at once? In one of two of Seattle’s funkiest neighborhoods: Georgetown! Join us at “The Duwamish River in 3-D” – an unconventional public meeting in Georgetown style! More details here:
When: Thursday, May 23rd at 6:00 p.m.
Where: Sandbox Sports (5955 Airport Way S, Seattle, WA 98108)
What: everything described above plus child care, beautiful people and saving YOUR river!
Bring your flip flops (or easy-to-take-off shoes), shorts, sun glasses and the WHOLE family (this is a family-friendly event).
We will be presenting about the Proposed Cleanup Plan for the Duwamish River and what you can do to make sure the cleanup is one that truly benefits you, other affected communities and protects fish, wildlife and human health. The format will be a brief, visual and graphic tour where you will be able to learn what the cleanup is about, how it can be improved, discuss the alternatives with your neighbors, ask questions and let EPA know how and to what extent you want them to clean up your river.
Your participation and input is much needed; we only have 23 days left to save our river!

The event is co-sponsored by Georgetown Arts and Cultural Center, United Artists of Georgetown, Sandbox Sports and DRCC/TAG.
