The Delridge Wetland Park Project is creating space for increased community use in addition to restoring a unique urban greenspace in the Longfellow Creek watershed. 

DNDA’s Wetland Workshop Series offers a variety of free events designed to facilitate a re-introduction between our communities and the Delridge Wetland. The goal for the workshop series is to address community priorities, offer fun and informative environmental education experiences, and support further community connections and resiliency.

The first event of the Wetland Workshop Series is Saturday, January 11!
