qʷiqʷəlut - Help us restore qʷiqʷəlut …10/15/2022


For 4+ years now, 350 Tacoma (with the support of City of Tacoma Environmental Services) have been working to restore qʷiqʷəlut, a long-neglected salt marsh located deep in the industrial Port of Tacoma, nestled between an oil terminal and a container shipping yard. We'd love your help!

Tools, gloves, and instruction will be provided. This event is open to people of all ages and abilities. Start your weekend off with some refreshing outdoor activity as we remove invasive weeds and restore native habitat.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting the size of this event 15 people, so make sure to register and save your spot!

All ages OK

What to Bring

Please dress in layers and in clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes, long sleeves, and pants are recommended. Bring a full water bottle and snacks. Don't forget to bring your rain gear if rain is in the forecast.

Where to Meet

On Port of Tacoma Rd, the Salt Marsh is located one block north of Lincoln Ave. on the right hand (east) side. Look for the white Green Tacoma Partnership signs, orange cones, and sunflower signs. Try to arrive a little early if it's your first time and you should see us from the road.
