Restore Seahurst Park!

February 29, 10:00 am1:00 pm

Burien

Join us for a few hours of helping improve our local forest. Seahurst Park is a Puget Sound treasure with beach, forest, wetland, and many park amenities to delight its visitors. Invasive plants threaten to reduce its natural diversity and beauty. The Green Burien Partnership aims to engage the community in learning about and restoring parts of Seahurst. We’ll be removing English ivy and Himalayan blackberry, and spreading mulch if we have time. Restoration is a fun way to interact with your park in a new way while improving your local environment and enjoying the outdoors.

Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all of the tools and training needed. So bring along your friends and family and get your hands dirty!

What to Bring: A water bottle, a snack if you want one, and tough clothes, and shoes that can get dirty (because they will!), including long pants and a long-sleeved shirt to protect against prickly blackberry. Closed-toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine. Remember to check the weather and bring appropriate layers and rain gear or sun protection as needed.

Where to Meet: Meet along the sidewalk on SW Seahurst Park Rd (the main road into Seahurt) just next to the upper parking lot.

Where to Park: Park in the upper parking lot.

Youth volunteers: If you are under 18 and attending the event without a parent or guardian, please come to the event with a Youth Waiver signed by a parent or guardian. The youth release waiver can be found here.
