Event description
Join United By Blue for a cleanup of Elliott Bay!

About this Event

Saving the world isn't easy. Starting is.

Join United By Blue and REI Co-op as we start with one coastline at a time. On November 9th, we'll be cleaning up the shoreline of Elliott Bay from Myrtle Edwards Park and we invite you to join us! Come out and volunteer with us by picking up trash before it has the chance to enter the Bay and larger Sound, where it is harder to recover and a greater threat to wildlife.

Meet us across from the W Thomas Ave Pedestrian Bridge to get geared up and meet your volunteer team. We'll clean the park trail system and within the rocky coastline, so wear long pants and closed toe shoes with good traction. All cleanup supplies will be provided onsite.

Following the cleanup, games and educational initiative will be available for volunteers to play, with United By Blue prizes for game winners. All volunteers will go home with a United By Blue stainless steel water bottle as well. Family friendly, and all ages and abilities are welcome.

This cleanup will kickoff a month of weekly cleanups hosted by REI and United By Blue on waterways all over the country as we count down to #OptOutside day (some people know it as Black Friday). This year, we encourage everyone to not only #OptOutside, but also #OptToAct - take action to protect the outdoor and natural spaces we love.
