Welcome to Magnuson Nature Programs! This year, in response to input from parents and kids, we have more programs on our schedule than ever. Registration is open for all of our spring and summer camps, classes, and nature walks, and a special thanks to all who are helping them fill up! Our annual spring kickoff event- Celebrate Urban Nature- is coming up on Saturday April 9th, and we hope to see you there too! Click on the Events menu tab above for all the details.

FREE field trips!

Our new grant from King Conservation District makes it possible for us to offer FREE 2nd and 3rd grade field trips to all Seattle Public Schools where 35% or more of the students receive free or reduced-fee lunch!

Field trips are available during spring and fall of 2016, and eligible schools can return for additional field trips in 2017. There are 4 different field trip themes that teachers can choose from, and all field trip activities are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.

News and Notes

Mayor Murrray just announced that Seattle P-Patch gardeners donated over 39,000 lbs. of food to local food banks and hot meals programs in 2015! Magnuson P-Patch donations were #1 in the city with 4,739 lbs. The Magnuson Children's Garden plot donated 50 of those lbs., besides feeding hundreds of children and adults on "Snack Walks" at our classes, camps, and field trips! Kudos to ALL Magnuson P-Patchers who gave their time and energy to grow so much for other community members.
