Volunteer patrols on the Soundkeeper boat form a central part of our effort to monitor pollution and prevent debris from reaching our waterways. While on patrol, volunteers will learn about the history of Seattle’s development and have the opportunity to view our urban waterways from a unique perspective. Harbor seals, sea lions, and populations of migratory birds are often seen on patrol.
Volunteers will ride as passengers in the Soundkeeper boat and help observe shorelines and waterways. Volunteers may help report pollution to an appropriate agency when necessary and assist in removing marine debris from the water.
No prior boating experience is needed and all necessary equipment is provided. Please wear closed toe shoes and dress comfortably in layers. We recommend bringing water and a snack.
To attend: Space is limited. Please email Kerry (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your spot.
