Green Burien Day Helps Restore Urban Forest in Hilltop Park

On October 22, 2022, more than 40 people braved the cold and rain in Hilltop Park for our third annual Green Burien Day event.

Neighborhood volunteers were joined by staff and volunteers from EarthCorps, Partner In Employment, Burien PaRCS Hilltop Park afterschool program students, Green Burien Partnership forest stewards, Burien PaRCS staff, and Councilmember Stephanie Mora.

Participants installed 240 native plants in areas of the park that have, over the last few years, been slowly transformed from overgrown blackberry patches and ivy-covered trees to a healthy urban forest.
