Lake Union is a freshwater lake in Seattle that connects Lake Washington to Elliott Bay. Surrounded by the city, Lake Union is a perfect example of urbanized nature. Join Puget Soundkeeper for a kayaking patrol and trash cleanup while exploring one of the waterways that makes Seattle such a unique city. Also look for flocks of migratory birds, turtles, and other wildlife on the water!
Volunteers will be outfitted in double kayaks and paddle to a designated area of Lake Union to monitor water pollution and remove debris from the shorelines. If necessary, volunteers may help report pollution concerns to an appropriate agency.
No prior kayaking experience is needed and all equipment is provided (boats, paddles, PFDs, spray skirts and equipment for cleaning up trash). Everyone will be outfitted in a double kayak. Participants must dress for the weather and expect to get a little wet. A safety overview will be delivered before heading out.
To attend: Space is limited and filled on a first come, first serve basis. Please email Kerry (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your spot.
