Salmon Creek Ravine - Burien Earth Gay!09/30/2023


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, open to everyone, in particular LGBTQ+ folx and our allies.

We'll be enjoying fun activities and 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 in 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, pulling weed species, come dressed for the weather and weed pulling. Gloves and tools provided.
