Your Backyard or Balcony can become a Wildlife Habitat. It's Easy!
Follow this link to the National Wildlife Federation website and learn how.
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.
