The photos on our pages are used with the permission of Meghan. She has lots more photos taken at Seahurst Park in the Seahurst Park section of her Flickr Gallery.
Burien's Seahurst Park Master Plan includes lots of information about the Park, and on the left are links to 3 photo galleries. The first one has some old photos of the area, including a couple from the 1960's and one taken during the seawall construction.
Maximillian Millipede (who calls herself an "amateur naturalist", but knows a lot more than any other "amateur" that I know) has a set of 355 photos at flickr.com. They include birds, crabs, bugs, lots of moss and lichen, flowers, plants and more. All identified as to what they are. A very nice reference showing the wildlife in the park.
There is now a Flickr group specifically for photos from Seahurst Park.
The City of Burien has a three page photo gallery of pictures from Seahurst Park dating from the mid 60s to recently. The old photos are on the first page.
The University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory shares the facility at the Marine Technology Lab as a research site. The front page has live images from an underwater camera and a shore camera, archived images, and graphs of current weather.
Videos of Seahurst Park, hosted on YouTube.
A Day in the Park (7:42) is a video from September 29, 2007 showing the work that a group of volunteers did to help clean up the park.A short day in the park (0:50) is a short video of activity on the beach. The video is taken from the section of beach that is restored, and in the distance you can see some of the remaining seawall.
There's a video inventory (6:28) of some of the plants that may be lost if the Westmark Development proceeds without adequate protection.
Photographs taken in the Park
Cleanup Day in the Park. 22 pictures. On a very rainy Saturday, September 20, 2008, over 50 people showed up to help cleanup Seahurst Park as part of National Coastal Cleanup Day. They removed invasive plant species (mostly blackberries, ivy and morning glory) and the kids who were too young to use tools helped pick up garbage. We especially want to thank REI [one of the sponsors of the event] who were responsible for most of the volunteers. It was the kind of day that makes you want to pull the covers back over your head, but everyone put on their rain gear and showed up anyway. The photos showing some of the work that was done. If anyone else has any photos they'd like to share, please contact us using the address at the bottom of any of our main pages.
North Creek Basin. 77 pictures. I've put up a batch of photos, mostly taken down in the center of the wetlands. Some are in black and white. Most do not have captions.
Ivy Clearing. 21 pictures. taken during and after the process of clearing some massive clumps of ivy out of two pairs of trees along the Service Road in the park.
Sunsets in the Park. 21 pictures. Photos taken at or near sunset in Seahurst Park.
Snowfall in Seahurst Park. 34 photos taken in December 2008 when the area got more snow than usual, and it lasted longer than it usually does around here.
Photographs taken in the Park, related to the wetlands Google Map
These photos all relate to points on the Google Map of the wetlands area. The name refers to the point from which they were taken. These links are also available from the Points of Interest on the Google Map. Because they're intended to be linked from the Google Map, the Home button at the top of each gallery will take you there. Use your Back button if you want to return here.
Point 1 (green icon on eastern edge). This is the area that was determined to be a wetland by the surveyor in 1991. 2 photos.
Point A (orange icon on the north side) These 2 photos are looking down into the basin from the trail along the north side.
Point B (green icon in the center of the map) These 12 pictures were taken downstream, west of Point B on the map. This area is outside the wetlands boundary that we have marked on the map.
Point C (orange icon on the east side) These 5 photos were taken from Point C on the map. This area is approximately 50 yards north of the area identified by the surveyor in 1991.
Point D (orange icon on the east side) These 5 photos were taken from Point D on the map. This area is approximately 25 yards north of the area identified by the surveyor in 1991. I climbed down into it to take these photos.
Point E (orange icon on the east side) These 10 photos were taken from Point E on the map. This area is just south of the area identified by the surveyor in 1991. I climbed down into it to take most of these photos.
Point F (orange icon on the south east corner) These 2 photos were taken from Point F on the map. This area is at the point furthest SE and is probably the headwaters of one of the tributaries mapped by Trout Unlimited in 2003.
Point G (orange icon on the north east corner) These 6 photos were taken where a stream bed crosses the trail, in the NE corner of the basin.
Point H (orange icon in the center of the map) These 6 photos were taken from Point H on the map. The pictures were all taken from the road, looking down into the valley. Some of the photos are several days apart as I tried to get some that weren't blurry. This is the western most point of what appears to be a large, relatively contiguous wetland. There appear to be additional smaller patches of wetland further downstream.
Point I (orange icon in the center of the map) 8 photos. All but the last two of these photos were taken from the trail in the section between the bridge and the beach. The last two were taken from a high section of trail looking down into the basin, upstream from the bridge.
Point J (orange icon on the western edge of the map) 8 photos. These photos document a wetland area that is within a few yards of the beach.
Point K (orange icon on the western edge of the map) 4 photos. These photos document a very wet area that is just above the Marine Technology Center.
