Caring for Creeks

You can make a difference in your watershed by caring for a local creek. Learn about Seattle's creek systems and get involved in sustaining them!

What you can do:

The City of Seattle joined in a 20-year plan to restore 2,500 acres of Seattle’s forested parkland. You can learn more about this initiative by visiting the Green Seattle Partnership website.
