We all can be good stewards of Miller and Walker Creeks
Over 70 percent of Burien sits within the Miller-Walker Creek Basin. Whether you live right next to the creeks or a mile away, your actions can help improve water quality and reduce stormwater pollution in the creeks and beyond. Good stewardship of our land and water not only protects the fish and wildlife that depend on it, but provides human benefits as well. By doing things in your own backyard to protect our watershed, you also enjoy a healthier home and yard for your children and pets.

About the Miller-Walker Basin Stewardship Program
The Miller-Walker Basin Stewardship Program is working to clean up and improve the health of Miller and Walker Creeks for ¬aquatic life, environmental health, and people. Additionally, the Program exists as a resource for information and assistance for community members about the health of the local environment and Puget Sound.
