Three Ways to Give Back

Enjoy Burien’s parks and open spaces? Here are a few things you can do to ensure everyone can continue to enjoy them as well.

Great Burien Cleanup

Help clean up the earth one street at a time on April 24, 2021 by working with family members, housemates, or going out on your own. Showcase your positive impact on the Burien community by tagging your images on social media using the hashtag #GreatBurienCleanUp.


Volunteer in urban forest restoration by becoming a park steward or volunteering for a few hours. Park stewards focus on a park by removing invasive plants and planting native plants, organizing work parties, and educating the community about the importance of restoration. Alternatively, volunteers can join a work party to help remove invasive species and plant trees for part of a day.


Learn more about the importance of urban forests. Healthy urban forests improve air and water quality, create habitat for wildlife, and promote positive mental and physical health. The City of Burien offers opportunities to learn more about urban forest stewardship on public and private property through webinars. This is part of Burien’s larger strategy to protect local habitats, fight climate change, and provide enjoyable and peaceful spaces for our community to exercise, play, and live.
