Volunteers are needed to get outside and enjoy the sunshine for a few hours at Miller Creek Trail this Saturday, Mar. 2 while helping to improve your watershed.

The Miller Creek Trail in Burien provides important recreational opportunity and valuable fish and wildlife habitat. Join your friends and neighbors for a few hours Saturday, March 2nd, to help maintain and improve the stream-side habitat.

WHAT: We will spread mulch around recently planted native trees and shrubs to help inhibit weed growth, retain soil moisture, moderate soil temperatures, and reduce erosion. Mulch application will help ensure tree and shrub survival to benefit the creek and the salmon that inhabit the Miller Walker Basin.

WHEN: Saturday, Mar. 2, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Future dates: May 18th, Aug. 31, and Oct. 5
