REMINDER: Volunteers are needed for a few hours this Saturday, Oct. 27 to help improve your local park and enhance fish and wildlife habitat at a Tree Planting Party in Miller Creek.

The plan is to plant over 100 native trees and shrubs along the Miller Creek riparian corridor.

Why Miller Creek?
Opened in 2015, the Burien Miller Creek Trail is a community resource that provides important fish and wildlife habitat as well as recreational opportunity. Planting native trees and shrubs will help improve habitat conditions for local salmon and reduce stormwater runoff.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 27, 9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.

  • No experience required.
  • All ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.

WHERE: Miller Creek Trail, 14455 Des Moines Memorial Drive in Burien (map below). Parking available on the northwest side of Des Memorial Drive across the street from the Des Moines Way Self Storage.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Filled water bottle
  • Gardening gloves (if you have them; we also will have plenty to loan)
  • Dress for the weather – rain gear, layers, and sturdy shoes or boots
  • Tools, gloves, and snacks provided!
