The Port’s educational series kicks off this month, and ECOSS and partner organizations will be on board to help answer questions. It’s a great way to learn more about the Superfund site in our backyard and what’s being done to clean it up. And who doesn’t love a free, almost-three-hour tour?

Come see the Duwamish industrial area where more than 80,000 people work for an annual payroll of $2.5 billion. This waterway is not just essential for jobs, but provides critical habitat for fish and wildlife. Government, community and business efforts have combined to make the waterway flow cleaner into Elliott Bay. You’ll board a floating classroom to learn about marine industrial commerce, the legacy of past industrial activities, fish and wildlife habitat restoration, and Superfund cleanup plans.
