"Birds, Butterflies & Bees for Burien in 2019"
 Create Wildlife Habitats to Help Pollinators Thrive

This program is funded by the Port of Seattle’s Airport Community Ecology “ACE" small grants fund.

Here's the calendar of events that support this program.
We're partners with the City of Burien, the National Wildlife Federation, New Start Academy in the Highline School District, carpenters from the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters, the New Start Community Garden  and other local non-profits.  We're installing native plants that provide important habitat for pollinators and native birds in a Burien Park, providing classes and a workshop in the Spring on birdhouse making which will be open to the community, removing invasive noxious weeds in a Burien park, hosting information kiosks at the Burien Farmers Market in the summer, and working with New Start Academy for a unit on birds and pollinators.

Attract Birds, Butterflies and Bees to Your Yard or Balcony

Native Trees, Bushes, and Shrubs, like Huckleberry and Thimble Berry, support native pollinators, birds and butterflies, as well as the migratory species that are passing through. Include these plants in your landscaping.

Hazel Valley Community Garden - Breaking Ground in 2019

We're excited to announce that a new community garden is coming to the Hazel Valley area of Burien!

Here's the event schedule for this project.  Volunteers are Welcome.

We're partners with the Highline Untied Methodist Church, the National Wildlife Federation, the City of Burien, and members of the Hazel Valley Community.
Support for the Hazel Valley Community Garden was provided by the Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund, a grant-making fund created by the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance and administered by the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment, and the City of Burien Neighborhood Grant Program.

How the 2 Rain Gardens Function at the Hazel Valley Community Garden

One collects storm-water from the nearby roof, and the other captures and filters street run-off water, slowly filtering and removing toxins before water enters the under-ground water supply.
