Volunteers are needed to help restore Miller Creek this Saturday, Oct. 29 at 11 a.m.

You’ll help plant Natives at Miller Creek, which is located at S. 144th Street in Burien.

Volunteers have been working to restore this site along the Miller Creek trail since 2007.

“Join us to plant native trees and shrubs to make a healthy buffer, so our salmon have cool and clean water!”

No experience is necessary, and refreshments, gloves, and tools are provided! Please RSVP to help us plan ahead!

WHAT: We will be planting over 100 native trees and shrubs. If time allows, we will remove other invasive weeds and spread mulch. NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.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 St Miller Creek Trail on the right.

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

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Clothing that will protect you from the cold, rain, and blackberry thorns (and that you don’t mind getting dirty)
  • Filled water bottle
  • We provide light refreshments, gloves, tools, and training.

RSVP and Questions: Click this Survey Monkey Link to SIGN UP, or email or call Elissa Ostergaard, [email protected], 206-477-4792.
