Habitat Restoration at Salmon Creek Ravine

When

Event Type
Description

The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust is working with the City of Burien to restore habitat at Salmon Creek Ravine Park. The park is forested, minimally developed, with some social trails throughout. It follows the steep ravine of Salmon Creek and other tributaries, which flow into the Puget Sound. Though forested, the tree make up is a majority aging deciduous trees such as big leaf maple and alder, accompanied by many weeds such as English ivy and Himalayan blackberry. To support a thriving forest here, volunteers will assist in removing weeds and planting native plants, including coniferous trees and understory shrubs.  

In October, the Greenway Trust is celebrating our long-term partnership with Carter Subaru, whose support has assisted in the planting of over 200,000 trees since 2008.
