Volunteer patrols form a central part of our effort to monitor pollution and prevent debris from reaching the Sound. Soundkeeper is out on the water each week at various locations around Elliott Bay. While on patrol, we keep an eye out for abnormal discharges from stormwater pipes and combined sewer overflows. Along the way, volunteers will learn about the history of Seattle’s industrial development and view our waterways from a unique perspective. Check out our reoccurring patrol opportunities!
