Restoring the Duwamish: FedEx Cares Seattle Volunteers Give Back and See Great Results

In the Spring of 2013, Seattle FedEx Cares volunteers installed plants along the Duwamish River and created “rings of life” around newly planted trees clearing away invasive weeds. The Duwamish River is the only river running through the city of Seattle and is a vital part of the local habitat. Six years later another group of FedEx Cares volunteers, including many from the original group, returned to the river and an adjacent site to help again.
