Miller Creek Trail at S 144th StREMINDER: Volunteers are needed to help restore the Miller Creek S. 144th Street Trail this Saturday, July 16, from 9 a.m. – Noon.

Join your neighbors to restore the forest near Miller Creek, continuing the work that has been done by previous volunteers since 2007. Get outside and get some exercise while improving the health of the creek! This site is a hidden gem, you’ll love the new trail.

No experience is necessary, and gloves, tools, and light refreshments are provided.

Please RSVP so we can plan for tools and snacks. 

WHEN: Saturday, July 16, 9 a.m. to Noon; and Saturday, August 27, 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Park at the trail parking lot along Des Moines Memorial Drive just south of S. 144th St. in Burien. Walk west along the Miller Creek trail, cross S 144th Way, and look for us next to the S 144th Street Miller Creek Trail on the right.

WHAT: Work with volunteer Habitat Stewards to remove invasive weeds, spread wood chip mulch, and prepare the area for planting more native plants this fall.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Clothing that will protect you from the sun, cold, rain, and blackberry thorns (and that you don’t mind getting dirty)
  • Filled water bottle, gloves if you have them

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This park does not have a restroom – please plan ahead.

RSVP – Let us know you are coming so we can plan for enough tools and snacks!
