Seahurst Beach Cleanup Success


Supporting a healthy shoreline for a brighter future

Burien, WA— 202 lbs. of trash was collected throughout Seahurst Park on Friday, February 20th. Working alongside ESC & the City of Burien were AVID students from Highline High School, Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, & the WA Conservation Corp. All together there were seven bags of trash, four of which consisted entirely of recyclables. The more bizarre findings included a laptop battery charger, several pairs of shoes, and a soiled diaper.

Seahurst Park is home to the largest beach restoration project in Puget Sound, and it is ESC's dream to see this significant achievement serve as a catalyst for future shoreline restoration projects. Seahurst Beach is an amazing biological community of "super habitats" that come together to support a rich variety of fish and wildlife. By reconnecting and strengthening these diverse communities we ensure a positive future for them and ourselves. By embracing this message that diversity makes us stronger, ESC is striving to engage and empower our young leaders in the Burien community. No matter where they come from or where their interests lie (biology, engineering, math, or the arts) these young minds will have the opportunity to take an active role in the stewardship of Seahurst. Let's welcome with open arms the fun and wonder of self exploration, and work together to protect this beautiful place so many call home.
