Burien Earth Gay at Salmon Creek Ravine
September 30 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Join a community of queer environmentalists for Burien Earth Gay! City of Burien, QPOC Hikers, Washington Conservation Action, Birds Connect Seattle, Patagonia, and Queers4Conservation are partnering to host this inclusive celebration of the Earth. This event is family-friendly and open to everyone, in particular LGBTQ+ folx and allies.
We’ll be enjoying fun activities at Burien’s Salmon Creek Ravine, including pulling weeds, birding, a nature walk with plant identification, litter pick up, and more. Join us to help restore our park and celebrate Earth the queer way!
Accessing the site includes walking and a moderate slope, but there will be a shuttle available from the nearby Goodwill parking lot. We will do an accessible “bird sit” around the park. Nature walk includes a slow walk up a moderate slope. Litter pick-up will involve walking but litter grabbers will be provided to minimize stooping. Restoration involves stooping and bending and pulling weed species, come dressed for the weather and weed pulling. Gloves and tools provided.
What to Bring
Bring a reusable water bottle if you have one! Wear shoes that are good for walking and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Dress for the weather. We will have rain ponchos and canopies available if it is raining.
