Miller CreekFrom the King County Miller and Walker Creeks Stewardship Page:

We all can be good stewards of Miller and Walker Creeks!

Whether you live right next to the streams or a mile away, your actions can help improve water quality and reduce stormwater runoff. This, in turn, will help our region’s efforts to improve Puget Sound.

There are many ways that you can contribute:

Control invasive weeds:

Take care of your car:

Conserve water:

Put household hazardous waste in its place:

Reduce runoff/practice “low impact development”:

Keep soap suds and grime out of storm drains:

Protect native streamside (“riparian”) vegetation:

Volunteer at an upcoming restoration project:

  • Stewardship projects will be posted here in 2008
  • Stewards of the Cove every second Saturday of the month beginning March 2008 (external link)

Basin Steward Available to Help

Contact basin steward Dennis Clark, 206-296-1909, if you want to:

  • Volunteer to help plant trees and control invasive weeds
  • Improve your streamside property with natural yard care and use of native plants
  • Arrange a presentation for your school, community group, or faith community
  • Report fish sightings or non-emergency problems with the creeks

[On a personal note, the Editor of this here blog decided long ago to never use pesticides on his lawn or garden; more recently he decided never to wash his car again in his driveway, but then again, he lives just about 300 feet from Puget Sound]
