Miller Creek Renewal Is 9am-Noon Sat. Oct. 18th
The Coho Salmon you see above was photographed at the “Fish House” in Miller Creek (ironically enough by longtime resident Brett Fish) and stands as a signal that yes indeed, the stewardship of both Miller and Walker Creeks is working!
But it’s not over â€“ Sat. Oct. 18th your help is requested to work on the Miller Creek Renewal at S. 144th Way, from 9am to Noon.
- Do you care about a healthy environment for your children?
- Do you want to improve Highline for fish, wildlife and people?
- Do you like caring for trees that youâ€™ll be able to watch grow year by year?
- Do you want to get rid of the stress of the work week by whacking non-native, invasive weeds?
- Do you want to meet some of your Highline neighbors?
- Do you want to make sure photos like the ones above can be taken again?
This will be the final maintenance work for the year at this site, where restoration began in October 2007. Come out to help weed, possibly plant a few final trees, and spread mulch.
Here’s what you should bring:
- An eager attitude
- Sturdy shoes or boots
- Water bottle
- Gloves (if you have them)
- Gloves, tools, and snacks will be provided!
Location is South 144th Way, west of Des Moines Memorial Drive in Burien (map below).
