Quite an Adventure!  Come learn more about the Green River Gorge which is upstream on the Green-Duwamish river. This 12 mile long gorge is the last lowland wilderness left on the Green-Duwamish river. Steep sandstone cliffs tower 150-300 feet above the river.  Springs emerge from the rim of the gorge and cascade into the water below. Otters, mink, bobcat, eagles, osprey, bear, and cougar find solitude along the secluded corridor. Its rugged remoteness has allowed this special place to survive as the area around it is developed.

Experience the Green-Duwamish like never before.  Local conservationist and adventurer, Lisa Parsons, hiked, bushwacked, swam, and kayaked the entire 12 mile long Green River Gorge last summer to document this incredible riverscape. Now she brings her images and stories to communities along the entire Green-Duwamish.

Learn more about how you can help protect the Green-Duwamish River in your own community.
