April 24th at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden, we’ll be discussing living with wildilife in the city with a Wildlife Biologist from the USDA. It’s a cool presentation complete with animal pelts and everything- bring your questions. We’ll also hear from Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition, who would like to hear from us too:
The Duwamish, Seattle’s only river, has been declared by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a Superfund Site, one of the most hazardous waste sites in the nation, and its health and future is at a critical moment. On February 28, 2013 the EPA released its proposed cleanup plan for the Duwamish River. The affected communities and residents of Seattle now have 3 months to provide their comments, input and concerns. This will be our only opportunity to ensure a cleanup that is environmentally sound, socially equitable, and provides A River for All: you, residents of the area, Tribal and subsistence fishermen, fish, wildlife, business and industry. All of us will be affected by how well the EPA cleans up our river.
