Local Cruise Lines Celebrate Earth Day and National Volunteer Week by Digging In at Golden Gardens April 28, 2013

This week there was lots of volunteering happening all around the country, seeing as how it was National Volunteer Week, and Seattle was no exception.  Amidst a ton of other efforts, we helped out at a project with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) at beautiful Golden Gardens Park on Tuesday.


CLIA is the world’s largest cruise association and is dedicated to the promotion and growth of the cruise industry.  26 of the major cruise lines serving North America are members of this group, including the four that participated in this event: Holland America Line, Seabourn, Windstar Cruises and Paul Gauguin Cruises.

The event was covered nicely by the Ballard News Tribune, and holy cow: Mayor McGinn even proclaimed the day: “Cruise Industry Employee Volunteer Recognition Day.”  Pretty impressive!

Over 50 people came out to dig in and ensure the beaches and parks of our city are preserved and taken care of. The invasive species didn’t stand a chance against this crew!


Big thanks to everyone that came out to volunteer, and to Seattle Parks and Recreation for hosting the project!

  1. […] I guarantee that once you’ve read my guide, you will be left COMPLETELY SHOCKED AND SPEECHLESS at just how much you’ve been misled, overcharged and even flat out deceived by the cruise lines. […]
