And here is the blurb + poster for the Halloween Toxic Terrors Boat Tour:

Halloween Toxic Terrors Boat Tour

Yes, our Halloween Toxic Boat Tour for this year is coming soon!  Last year's tour was awesome; we had Neo (from the Matrix), Ricky Ricardo, a teddy bear, and many interesting other characters show up.  Click here to see pictures our 2012 and 2011 tours.

So, what's the tour about?  Several spooky guides will lead you on a two-hour boat tour of the Duwamish River Superfund site. You'll hear stories of local Native American supernatural legends, early settler stories from Georgetown and South Park neighborhoods, and learn about the terrifying realities of toxic chemicals in the Duwamish River! You will also learn about the natural and human history of the Duwamish Valley, environmental health and (in)justice, and the future of Seattle's very own Superfund cleanup site on this guided boat tour.

To buy tickets and RSVP click here.  Tickets are $15 (kids) and $25 (adults).   100% of your proceeds will go to our ongoing education and outreach programs.

Costumes are not obligatory but are strongly encouraged.

If the tour becomes full, please email contact@duwamishcleanup.org, and we will create a wait list and contact individuals if spaces become available.

Note: Participants must RSVP through Brown Paper Tickets for this tour. Space is limited and we cannot over-book the tour. The tours will happen rain or shine and are appropriate for people of all ages. You may bring a snack to eat on the tour.

Contact Amanda at amanda@duwamishcleanup.org  for more info.
