The West Duwamish Greenbelt, which borders South Seattle College, is the largest greenbelt in the city. Named for the people who historically lived in this area, this site was once filled with tall western red cedar, hemlock, and Douglas fir trees. After European settlement, the greenbelt was subject to logging, gravel mining, and a proposed highway. Today, it is the site of a major ecological restoration effort led by Nature Consortium. This walk and lecture will focus on the native trees and shrubs being planted to restore this forest to its former majesty.
