Our Initiatives



Denny Creek Preservation

FHNA carries on 20-years of work by DCNA to improve the habitat of Denny Creek as it flows through Big Finn Hill Park and OO Denny Park. Our programs have assessed the health of the watershed, restored and preserved the creek and environs, and fostered the return of native fish species.
Catch up on our ongoing work in the watershed.

Juanita Woodlands

In 2003, the State of Washington announced it would sell 40 acres of pristine woodlands along Juanita Drive for residential development. By collaborating and negotiating with local and state government agencies, DCNA raised the funds to purchase and preserve the woodlands as an urban forest and wildlife habitat preserve.

Neighborhood Parks

The Big Finn Hill and Holmes Point neighborhoods are home to several of the most naturally diverse parks in the Seattle area, offering lakeside beaches, miles of maintained trails, forest groves, and pristine streams. FHNA supports clean up and restoration projects within the parks and fosters opportunities for environmental education.

Tree & Hillside Protection

The hillsides and bluffs on Holmes Point and Finn Hill are susceptible to erosion from storm water runoff and landslides caused by unstable soil.  DCNA has collaborated with King County to enact ordinances to reduce the risks.
